H960 repo stabiliser feet redux

Here's my conclusion to the H960 stabiliser feet thread from a while ago where I was after measurements of
the originals. And thanks for all the help from cctalk (especially Noel) who supplied dimensions and photos.

I finished these last year but moved on to other projects and hadn't returned to the list to discuss them,
so I am doing that now. I made a pair each for my two H960's.

The feet consist of welded steel load-bearing frames with a C-profile that fits snugly onto the H960
base, a lower leg from a shelf bracket and a support strut. The leg is located by a steel bolt. The
bolt has the head machined to a disc, I was going to turn the taper and machine the slot but I lost
the photo of the original bolt that a listmember had posted so I left them at that. They could do with
nickel electroplating sometime. The frame is super strong, although I have not physically loaded them
to any great extent.

The outer end has a threaded adjustable pad the same size (AFAIK) as the originals, which are still
available. I found some correct size el-cheapo ones at the hardware store that did the job just fine.
The frame is threaded for the pad post and a nut on the pad then locks the pad from turning.

The outside aesthetics are taken care of with a 3D printed hollow shell modelled from the measurements
of the original casting. It slides onto the leg and is secured by the bolt. The shell CAD model still
needs some work to get the fit and front holes right, and a few other things but overall they look
fine and obey the 6 foot rule. A few coats of satin black enamel helps hide the print layering a bit.

inside a shell, and some of the test shells:
