    yes no bolt hole alignment issues between mounting lugs/studs and the 4 adjusting bolts.

    I've ordered cases .22 ammo from them under that program. I buy a lot of stuff for AR's, 1911's. If you haven't visited their site for a while, they're even selling firearms. As with any of these dealers you gotta shop prices.

    The holes on the back of the adapter I'm using are countersunk. So, i'll be drilling and tapping the back of the spider. The M8 1.25 30mm fit perfectly in the adapter and 30mm length on the screws will be just right. I hefted the four jaw last night and it's not that heavy, so I'll go ahead and carve the recess in the back of the spider. Don't think I'll worry about the unused holes in the spider. Function over form.

    I don't do Youtubes or have an audience when I'm working on my lathe so whatever works is my mantra.
