Already planned to put adjustable feet under the Royal. Still deciding whether screw-adjustable parallel wedge system, or "lift & rotate" style.

As RKC pointed out, early models didn't have adjustable feet. The old installation manual describes leveling the base frame by shimming the feet and planing the high spots on the frame. "Round veneer shims are supplied" to place under the feet.

My recently purchased GC1 is one of those with fixed feet. After 60ish years, a "not supplied" list is where to find my shims along with other various bits of hardware.

Call me, and I'll tell you how to turn those into adjustable feet for less than $10.

Thanks. You actually know my table; it's right near Boise, taking up my truck's parking space in the garage next to a non-running motorcycle. I’m moving it into the basement bit by bit, recruiting my neighbor to help with the heavy pieces.

I just happened to have been reading the old installation manual and thought I'd post the quote about the veneers under the feet.
