First of all thanks for your reply .
I looked at the stand a little more and got the bello diagram for it and the
table . The stand (column )is screwed on so I could remove it. Or also could use
the lower mounting holes for the hinge which would lower it only about
2 inches. Doesn't seem like the ideal solution the higher the t bar that the
mounts hand off of the more unstable the whole thing would be.
Looks like my thread got hi jacked
Since I live in Earthquake territory I want the TV very stable.
I don't think I need a machine shop to drill and tap holes , but I noticed
the screws in the column have insert for the threads inside the column
so I would have to do a hole all the way through to the other side
and get long enough bolts to go all the way though.
I thought maybe there would be an off the shelf solution but maybe not.
