I 'finally' have my Ries A250 on the way.
It only took 3 months of waiting to get it, but it will be worth it.
My Korona had a plate screw onto the base that had a quickplate attached to that.
I removed the plate and the original bushing is pretty much gone and the hole is all torn up.
I saw some nice 3/8" bushing at Lowe's that should work. They are the type that screw in. It's 7/8" long which is the width of the bed. The girth should be wider than the current hole so it will have enough bite.
My question is how does the bushing stay put?
The hole in the base goes all the way through.
I was thinking of dabbing the exterior threads of the bushing in Liquid Nails before screwing it in.
Any suggestions? I might only have one shot at it and don't want to screw it up. I am rebuilding a new base for the beast, but it's going slow......
