2) The "stuff" is the table posts, the trunion, the table. Held together by joints that can be a bit sloppy as well as can be deflected under loading. If it were not so, we would not be having this bantering.
Sorry you see this as bantering. I was just trying to understand your comment "stuff above"..."stuff above what".
I did not mean to imply that bantering is a negative thing.
