You know what I looked at that DIY sometime ago and thought hmm I dont like the idea of taking mass out of the mounting location as it could potentially fatigue once modified & sawn, but looking at it again I think it shall be OK...

Certainly a lot cheaper to do this mod then buy new torin stands, and cast iron can easily be cut with a hacksaw (even though I have access to a variety of band saws, lathes, mills etc @ work - Im a metallurgical engineer for a steelmaking co)
