    I love it! Just another great use for milk crates and scrap lumber. I was thinking of having some 4 inch PVC cut to the length of the distance from the floor to the underside of the table... but your solution is more immediate.

    How so? I've been under there, and put some good pressure on it, and it's super-tight...it's really not going anywhere, even if I kick it. The weight of the table plus the weight of the machine makes it really tight, and the blocks are very straight...not crooked at all (I had a lot of practice with alphabet blocks when I was a kid...could get them stacked really high before they toppled over )

    If hubby has a drill press, I would have him drill holes in each peice of wood except bottem and top, run a dowel through it (wood or metal) and them glue top and bottom to ones below and above it and that would make it more sturdy.

    No more bouncy table! It looks like it would collapse, but it's in there nice & tight, and it's not going to move. Sa-weet! Now I can practice FMQ "full throttle"

    TEELER you are so witty. This post has been fun. Some chuckles for the morning. And all the duct tape suggestions. Joannes has printed duct tape, in all sorts of designs so you could really make it special. when there is a will there is a way!!! Nothing is stopping you!!

    Around these parts, we don't call this a "redneck solution". That's just pure Southern Ingenuity! LOL!

    Looks like a very thrifty idea to me. Everything on hand is what I like. I hate to wait.

    Dunno- 'spose the plastic just wasn't designed to have a machine with up & down moving parts on it, I guess. DH originally put a horizontal bar under there...helped a little...not much.
    Completely eliminating the flexibility in the center did the trick.
