I saw on here a month or so back that someone added another set of floor adpators and this allowed him to move the whole table over close to the other seat. This gives them alot of leg room sitting on the one side when they were working a project or just one person sitting at the table. I thought that was aneat idea as well.. This wasnt for a hinge type table setup however..

Never understood "why" the double post dinette table, when attaching to the wall with a single post is so much more stable. Some brain-iack must have thought this is a better system than the old fashioned proven methods and a way to charge more for the cost of manufacturing!

Good modification there!

My parents 1963 TT had the table attached to the wall, and was removable to change the dinette into a bed. My current TT has the double post. It's not too rocky, but we very seldom, if ever, turn the dinette into a bed. If it ever becomes shaky, I'll probably figure a way to mount it to the wall too!

"Perko" brackets also work, installed upside down, cured that problem with the table in my TH.

Well done! Here was my solution. Not "better", just different for those interested.

Wobbly Table Legs Solution


Happy New Year to All!

My TH has the table w/ two post that go into the sockets. Not only is the table wobbly, it breaks the cast sockets. Tomorrows mod will be to mount folding table legs to the table in hopes that that will steady it up.


For the price of two table legs, you can do this mod... and it will be much more stable, I think.


I did the folding legs mod yesterday and, no more wobble AND I can move it around. Thanks to the OP for the reminder to do it. Also did the cutting board top mod on the stove.
