Whoa, no wonder so many people think a self-supporting tower only
requires a 2 x 2 x 4 base. A871298 is the drawing for a BRACKETED tower
base, and is in my catalog as A871298R1 (rev. #1). It is printed on the
back of drawing A871302R1. This is serious enough that I am posting
this to the reflector too. Glad I didn't pay much attention to the
