For the larger body LOC stuff, the t-bolts work great (Little Nuke,etc),
but the smaller ones (the Legacy for example), I attach threaded studs
to the moter mount, so that they stick out 1/2" or so.. For the Legacy,
I used #6 screws, about 2 1/2" long, with the heads cut off.. Built
the motor mount as normal, then used a dremel to cut a slot for the
screws... (2 - 180 dg apart)
Using a loc 29-24 adapter, I put a 1/4 or so piece of 29mm tube on one
end, and buy using wingnuts on the studs, can secure 29 or 24mm RMS
