Hello there,

what a bunch of great ideas!

I don't understand the expanding dowel, though. (which is obviously entirely down to me)

If you turn the knob, then why does the bolt move downwards, rather than just twist within the dowel, without actually moving down (or back up again)? Also, can't you overtighten them, after which they can't be removed from the MFT any longer?

At first the bolts would spin a lot more than they do now. Each one is different. If one won’t stop spinning and I need to tighten it more, then I just use a screwdriver to hold it place while I tighten.

As far as being over tightened, yes, they often stay wedged when I loosen the knob, but then you just push down on the knob and it pushes the bolt free.
