Stump semi-final stage
The Stump with application of the Pana-vise. The vise is attached to a removable pad. If need be, the vise can be moved to a different location on the stump. Several identical pads have been made for future equipment applications. The top of the stump is removable. Necessary to put in T-nuts which are a part of the holding system for the equipment pads. I like to think of the pads as apps. There will be an app for the jump ringer, an app for etc., etc.
Some changes were made to the original stump. I decided it would be a good idea to raise the stump up by putting on some feet, thus allowing space under the stump for toes. Adding the shelf was a pretty good idea as it provides much needed storage space.
The stump is just heavy enough to stay in place, yet can be easily moved in and out of its storage spot.
It isn't real pretty, but its functional. And that's really all that matters.
