When I moved HDBX48, I didn't get the base, either.  I used pipe as the
stubs, choosing an OD that allowed the bolts to pull tight against the
inside of the lowest section without deforming the legs.  This has worked
fine (thus far).

The only problem I've had was that water got into the pipes (my fault) and
had to be siphoned out.  Put a cap on the pipes or fill them with cement
(after you put the bolts in).
