That sounds like a possibility... add a second (reinforcing) bar, perhaps made of a stiffer material like SS, using machine screws to hold it to the original base. I don't think I want to completely "replace" the base as I would worry the overall structural integrity would suffer. This would require longer thumb screws and it would affect film placement a bit but that can be compensated with a pinch of front rise. On the other hand it eliminates the need for reinforcement clamps. I'll talk to Keith Canham about this idea.
