Stabilizing table
« on: August 12, 2021, 05:36:18 AM »

From a previous owner we have the wood dining table, cushion, pedestal, and flange that the pedestal sits in. Should we have an additional part that connects the table to the mast for stabilization?  The pedestal is loose in the flange. If such a part exists is it able to be purchased? Thanks kerk.

Kerk,
It sounds like you have everything.  The table on Shamrock does wobble a bit, I've thought about adding a support to the compression post, but it hasn't bothered me that much.

My table flanges (caveat, obviously not a 34) have a ring extension round the top that is split in one location with a tightening thumbscrew (more of a Tee hand screw) thru it to tighten the bottom and under-table flanges. It works very well.

Id think if it bothers one enough a welder could add that to the flanges?  Picture a short (1-1/2?) length of pipe sitting above the flange, and split (3/4? Inch gap) at one point with short (1?) tabs perpendicular to the ring that a T-bolt goes thru. One of the tabs either threaded or has a nut welded on. The T bolt has is smooth except for the tip that is threaded. The shank has a shoulder that hits against one flange and the smaller diameter passes thru and the tip is where it threads into the other tab.

Excuse the poor artistry on my phone.

Nothing like this exists OEM.

Kirk : The original MK 1 dinette table had only the parts that you have.  There should be the center tube with a flat bracket (4 arms) attached for 4 screws that screw into the underside table bottom to secure the bracket to the table top!! 

BTW, for all you answering that do not have a MK 1 tabletop - the table top has a built in notch to fit around the Mast!!  There are also fiddles fastened to the starboard settee (under the cushion height - so when the table is down and turned into a bunk the table top sits on those fiddles for support!!!

A few thoughts

My table.

I have the exact same setup, except yours looks "welded" at the bottom?  Mine is just inserted, "compression fit" I guess.  The table is pretty wobbly and can't take much elbow weight.

My table base (OEM, I believe) is made by Zwaardvis, a well-respected European brand that is still made. It is very stable.
