How about machine screws and washers to hold it down? Do you have space to drill and tap a 1/4" hole to screw in the bolt? Or just a bolt/washer Then Washer/Nut to tighten that sucker up?

Not in your area, if I was I would, But I'm not... Just sayin.

Cheers

I could give you a hand with the welding, but probably not until the weekend. I'm in Gilbert as well. PM me and we should be able to sort something out for you.

My expando ring has been wired to my expando base for 5 or 6 years, it's held up just fine.

We use hogring wire ties, like upholsterers use . They seem to hold up better in the heat-cool change. Usually two per location which adds up, but works. Steve.
