Portable Base

I like this portable base a lot, but it has one design flow that I found a little annoying. The 3 mounting holes on the base are not counter sunk to allow mounting screws to be flush with the bottom of the base. Thus when using a jig in the base the jig adjustment are off by the height of the screw head that was used. The jig will not sit flush to the bottom of the base.See More

Portable Base Mounting question

I have a portable base and it requires 3 screws to mount it. I have noticed that no matter what screws I use the jig will not set flush in the bottom of the base thus the jigs settings are off by the height of the screw head.Can anyone suggest a solution without modifying the base?I had considered counter sinking the holes, but I thought I would come here first before I did anything.ThanksSee More
