i am definately following this! it is not too late to change my mind and do the legs like that.

what screws does it call for? how deep are the countersinks? how wide is the wider piece?

They are 3/8 and 6 inch long. I screwed up should have drilled 1/4 pilot holes. Very hard to
drive 3/8 screws without pilot holes. Going to put 3/8 dowels into drill pilot holes.

Gary, how are the ends that hold the long pipes in place attached to the well walls? I am imagining a few options, but I'm not really happy with any of them. Now I'm starting to think that just a 3" lag bolt would probably be adequate.

How are you going to attach them?

No connection in the plans other than to the floating jaw is attached with screws.
