Having a woodworking shop at hope and access to the machine shop at work I can always make something real rugged if the new legs from FR don't work out

UPDATE: Well I regret to report that the table (at least ours) is definitely wobbly. As in my prior post the culprit seems to be a poorly designed (or not up to the job) single latch that holds ONE of the three sections of ONE leg together when the table is in the upright position. Maybe a second latch on the other leg may have helped.

In the first picture the table is partially collapsed so the sections can be easily seen. In the second picture the table is in its upright/locked position and the gap can still be seen. Multiply this gap times six (two legs, three sections each) and you can start to see how if these sections are not (very) securely held together the whole assembly will be weak. By the way in the pictures the table is upside down resting on the dinette benches.

Ivesm, have you put your table together yet? What did you find?

I have 2 posts and the floor and table cups if someone wants to pay shipping, they can have them.

You could probably replace the legs with something similar to the existing legs, that were a bit stronger without any problem.
The other thing I was thinking about was installing the Dream Dinette table, but I don't know how much reinforcement would need to be added to the wall.

I spoke to my dealer about it, but he was not aware of anyone who'd done that with the 2604.

If you have a U shaped dinette I would remove the cups on the floor and cut a piece of 3/4 inch plywood to fit in the floor space. I would,get the Sequoia Table Leg System and screw the base plates to the plywood (carpet the plywood if desired) so no screws go into the slide out floor. I did something different but you could get the idea.

I'm surprised you could renew the thread since it is 4 years old!

My wobbly folding mechanism bit the dust back in April.

So I replaced with pedestals. No more sloshing drinks!

Is that on a slide floor? How did you mount leg bases?

dinette table legs

They are mounted to 3/4 inch plywood with 3/4 inch screws. Very sturdy.
And it is in the slide out.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
Drilled a pilot hole for each screw. I used a piece of masking tape around the drill bit at 1/2" so I wouldn't drill through the plywood and mistakenly hit something.

Here is a couple of pics of the plywood under the carpet and the bases on the floor.

So you did not add plywood just drilled into what was there?
Appreciate the responses!
