    Nice work and a great way to radius a small number pieces.

    My only question is, why cotter pins instead of a set screw? Seems like those pins are liable to collect schmutz and get caught on stuff.

    Otherwise, damned nice machining.

    Roll pins would look much better than split pins.

    -Why squaring the bottom of the hole for seating a spherical end ?
    IMHO he'd been less bad off with the drill angle in the first place,
    better still with a ball end milled seat.

    I would have welded the nuts on the underside so I retained the square shoulder to adjust down to.. I also would have considered thinning or even halving the nuts so I didn't lose as much height.

    That said, it's still nicer than some of the "feet" hiding under some of my tools/ stands/ etc
