Can't believe how loose the bolts were. Check your bolts!

I have a CNC router but never cut hard rubber on it, we'll see how it goes. I have the CAD drawing done and will try and cut it tonight.

For anyone that has replaced their pads, do you know what adhesive was used on the original pads? Looks like some sort of contact cement. If not, anyone have any recommendations for an adhesive that would work to adhere the new rubber pad to the tower.

Decided to add 1/4" aluminum back plate with rubber pad on the underside for more support as well.
