Default More mods to the 22.5 WSM

Hello everyone! Just thought I would share a couple of new mods that I've done on the WSM.

After adding the tables I found that is was pretty clumsy towards the back part of the tables between the "feet".

To counter this I needed to add support between the feet to allow for less "tip space" so I came up with this design.

I drilled holes and mounted it to the "legs" with the caster bolts.
This significantly eliminated the "tip hazard" due to the tables.
And for the final touch I decided that the standard door latch, or the Cajun Bandit compression latch wouldn't do this beauty any justice. So I asked a buddy of mine to make me a little "something special" to top it all off and here is what he came up with.
CNC machines are totally awesome!!
Soooo, here she is! All complete! (I think)
Can't wait to put it to use and give her the real test.

The tables have rods that insert into the holes of the handles.
