Yes, it really helps to see a scaled model of your ideas.
A lot easier to change a few entities , then making parts over.
Produce your G-code / cutter path with the model also.
I'm going to make aluminum legs after drawing the model.
If you or another member needs a model, email me with a sketch.
It's only a hobby

The 1" sq. tubing in the pictures back round is for the range only.
The display legs I made from 1-1/4 sq. by 18" long aluminum.
I turned the taper on a friends CNC lathe, then finished with my small mill.
I used the D&E plan for reference only, mines more heavy duty.

That certainly is more heavy duty than the D&E, solid aluminum legs are certainly heavy duty.
I am still surprised at how long the cycle times were to make those feet. Does your spindle not have very high rpm's making you keep the feed slowed down to keep the chip load in check?
(been working on my RF45 retrofit, got the power drawbar all working with tormach tooling, that completes everyting with the head, onto motorizing the axis now)
