Mac, are you saying two layers of hardboard over the plywood
foundation? I could do that with some reword but at this point I

of your idea of double stick tape and/or screws.

want to give that a thought.
Great idea LRod, I've made a note about your toggle clamp idea.
My local tool store - Outlet Tool Supply in Atascadero, CA - is having
its yearly blowout sale on Saturday and now I know I'll be walking out
with some goodies. Well, that and a bandsaw resaw blade, and ....
