Above is what I used on my LM-470, or rather two of them, you can get the
same thing from Harbor Freight for a third of the cost.

Mine was half inch off in places, I was fitting and old Tri-ex tower to a
new base.  I took a couple of us using our muscles but we got it bolted up.
You use the two bars to line up and hold while you get the bolts in.

I'd appreciate any pointers on how to untweak a Tri-Ex W-51 tower base.  
The apex (non-hinging) rebar with the flange welded to it is slightly 
bent outwards between the points where it's welded to the bolt flange 
and to the other rebar members of the cage.  It's tweaked just enough 
that the bolt holes don't align (about 1/2" off at the worst.
