    Hey Folks,

    I've got a PowerBrake that came with velcro and no feet. But, I need to get the cab solid. The problem - I can't find anywhere a photo or detail as to the type of feet those shipped with. There don't seem to be threaded holes unless they were huge. I also will be lucky to have a 1/4" of play inside the chassis under the board hosting the jacks. The other three holes have plenty of room. I may be able to use the nylon push rivets through some new rubber feet. Anyone have a photo detail of a foot so I can see what to go after? Oddly enough, I can't turn anything up from a search and really need to get it resolved in a day.

    Yes, I could JBWeld a few nuts to the inside...that's the last recourse, but a simpler fix would be great.

    Thanks!
    Brad

    Thanks, MDG...what I'm looking for is a photo of a foot...and to see how that's mounted. Maybe they used a coarse thread in the holes drilled? Doesn't look like anyone pushed out some threaded inserts. I'm likely just going to take the whole thing in disassembled to a local HomeDepot and find a threaded screw that will fit the hole...then drive on over to PartsExpress and grab some feet and cut the threads to length. Three holes...tons of room...one only gives me about a 1/4" at best before I het the jack board.

    Actually a plastic screw with an expandable insert that spreads out as the screw is pushed in. They don't actually screw tighten but do screw out when the foot is pulled up on, and the screw is turned.

    Before you put the feet back on, take chassis cover off and

    mod it.

    Thanks, Gunner! I've already modded it and swapped it off. I ended up using low profile, wide feet and some self-drilling sheet metal screws. Here's the result. And, yeah, since those holes were the same size, I figured it was something like what you have. Thanks for sharing!!! Mine didn't have the extra chassis screws. But, it does now! ;)


    So, that rejuvenated...that and an OCD 1.7 was swapped for this...


    ...might gut it an do point-to-point build...undecided.

    Bahahahaha...I didn't! I did what any smart tone-seeking guitar player would do! I swapped it for an Orange Jim Root #4! :O :) (Lol, you can see my swap fodder in the 'Other Amps' forum!)
