    As modifications go, this really does not amount to much but it works good. All we have to turn and adjust a leg leveler is that small square hole.

    I don't know how the rest of you make the level adjustments to your pins but I get down on my hands and knees and then get the pin airborne by jacking it up with my back. That gets tiresome, so on the pin I just got and set up I added two jams nuts and one washer to the shanks of the 4 levelers.

    This works like a dream. Now, if I need to tweak my play field level I can get a socket on the nut that is above the washer to raise and level the play field. And if I want to lower the play field I get an open end wrench to use on the nut that is below the washer. You don't need the washer but it makes it easier to get the wrench on the correct nut.

    You're just missing the extra nut to lock the leg in place once you get it where you want it.

    Nice idea!

    I thought I was the only one who did that!

    Yes, there really should be a nut on the leveler under the leg. For more support if nothing else.

    Would work fine for me on front legs. I put my rear legs all the way up, even on EMs, so no room for this mod! I guess I could find 4 inch levelers.

    Put them on the bottom then.

    I'm going to have to try this. My back thanks you.

    Well, it is nice to know that I'm not the only one who tries to act like a human forklift

    I didn't know there was any other way. Let's be honest that's the most exercise a lot of us get
