So there was a post awhile back that discussed replacement "leveling feet"
for the stabilizing outrigger front feet on H960 cabinets (DEC's formal name
for them is apparently "extension feet"); somone pointed out that one can
buy such things, and gave some pointers.
So I needed some, and here's the scoop: the threaded shaft on the leveling
foot is 5/16"-18, and a suitable replacment part is Vlier FSE302S, available
from in the US from MSC Industrial Supply:
(US$1.84 each + shipping).
I have obtained some, and they fit OK, with two caveats: i) the round foot
part is a significantly larger diameter than the DEC originals, but they do
fit OK on neighbouring extension feet (i.e. on a pair of H960's, both with
extension feet); and ii) the threaded part is somewhat longer than the
originals, so even when wound fully up, there isn't a lot of room between the
foot and the floor. (Of course one could trim the threaded shaft, but I'm
Anyway, if anyone in Europe needs some, and can't find any over there, let me
know, and I can obtain some and send them along.
I also need some of the larger main leveling feet, but I haven't been able
(yet) to find any. The threaded part is 7/16"-14, but nobody seems to make
7/16" these days? (Everyone who makes them now seems to go straight from 3/8"
Anyone know of a source for these, or a replacement? Thanks!
