Springfield Pedestal Question

I have a question for the people who have installed the Springfield Pedestal.
After installing the pedestal right out of the box, have you tightened the clamps on the tubes? I found the wobbliness could be reduced by snugging up the thumbscrews on the clamps. I'm just not sure how tight I can make them without breaking something.

Anybody else done this?

yes, I tightened mine up too, but I don't know to tell you by how much.

I'd be able to answer your question when I find the best place to order one.

I've looked at many sources and seen a wild variation in price. And being in Canada doesn't help. Where did you source yours?

Given use of similar items I'd think a gentle snug would be enough to firm it up and you'd have to use quite a bit more force to break them.

Given that ours might never be used in the lower position and one of the reasons that I'll be getting one is to have a solid table, I'm guessing mine will be snugged up firmly.

Oveetons price is $254 and am seeing a 25% off banner. Have any U.S. friends?

Read the fine print.
The price of the table is $254.97. The extra 30% off does not apply to any item whose price ends in $0.97.
Plus shipping.
Still a good price. Just might order one.

I would call them to order to see what discounts are available. That is where we bought ours and it was a good price as I remember.

I bought a Springfield table pedestal a couple weeks ago from Overton's... price was 254.97, discount was $63.74, total including $10.54 sales tax was $201.75.

When I went to the Overton website, I was asked if I wanted a "new customer" discount... or something like that (I can't remember the exact wording). I believe I was given a code to use. It was a 25% discount.

To answer the original question, tighten the thumb screw to the point where the clamps seems difficult to close. Then back off one full turn on the thumb screw. The clamps should close with easy to moderate force and be firm, not overly tight.

(Test: if you can rotate the table top with the clamps closed, it is not quite tight enough.)
