      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Here's how I did it on my 1/25 scale diner dio.

There is a mistake on the photo text. Instead of a #6 screw, washer & cover at the top and #4 on the base, It should be #8 screw, washer & cover on the top, and a #6 washer on the stool base. The nylon spacers are 1" long.The screw holds the stool onto the floor, then you snap the cover in place.

That's a great idea! Makes me want to build a diner just so I can build a few of those!

..those are just too cool Sam! It actually gave me the idea of using one in my garage dio. But instead of the finish washer base, I'll mount it on an old wheel rim. That way it won't look out of place in a converted warehouse.....
