I am sure someone has done this before, but wanted to share anyway.
It has always been a challenge when working on German tube chassis to get it upside down without damaging some component........$5 later and 30mins with some schedule 40 and Wallah!

Simple and elegant. Some times the K.I.S.S. principle works the best.

I like it! I'll be getting to a Telefunken Gavotte soon and that looks like a good solution and I already have the parts in stock. Thanks for sharing.

A few more pix, please? Hard (for me) to see how the chassis is being supported.

Thanks, Steve. Just me, probably, but I still can't make out the means of support.

These two screws go directly into the plastic pipe, through the existing chassis support slots/holes.......

Cool idea Steve.
