    I have one of the Ultimate support Studio organizers...It works great. However, it keeps wanting to tip backwards. I have it rested against the wall...But I'd like to have it rest properly on all four legs. I don't want to rearrange everything(monitors, monitor, mixer etc)

    I have these old ankle weights that I put towards the front legs of the unit and it helps but it's not solid...What other type of weighting can I use to counter balance? Preferbly Cheap?

    Take off the little rubber feet on the front tubes, drill a pilot hole 3/8" in from the edge of the angled front tube legs (on the bottom), stick a 2" drywall screw through the hole into the floor (2 1/2" if you've got thick carpet), slit the edges of the little rubber feet, and stick them back on over the ends of the tubes (or don't). Easy, under $3, won't ever move unless you want it to.

    We'll see how 'right' I have the potential to be when I plug in the (250 pound) power supply I built for my new (to me) analog board tonight, and see what melts...

    Yeah, I have a hard time "phasing" myself, I "field" so re"volt"ing; "wire" so "well-grounded" people "supply"ed with in-"capacitating" (s)urges to "pun"ish others in their "ohm sweet ohm", instead of just "sinking" a glass of "ripple" and "filtering" out all the noise? Try it - "joule" like it... evetS
