Jim, one other option is to use some tall brass cones between the two maple boards. The ones shown have threaded stubs on the top -- I just drilled appropriate sized holes in the bottom of the Nott' platform and screwed them in. In your case, if the top of the cone was screwed into your top platform, the weight of the board and 'table pushing on the points at the bottom would probably sink them enough to give you some nice lateral stability (I have two cats, and know well the need). :) Or you could invert the cones with the points up and thread them into your bottom shelf. Either way it would be pretty darn stable. Just a thought...
Have you tried the 40mm x 10mm Carbon Fiber Disc under the tip of the tall brass cones? In order to rigidly support a 1" thick HQ laminated bamboo platform for my CD transport, I use the carbon fiber disc under the tips of Audio Points 1.5AP1D brass cones, with a Herbie's Audio Lab Thin grungebuster Dot (black version, with optional adhesive backing) adhered under each disc, placed on a rigid MDF rack shelf surface. The carbon fiber disc with an indentation located on one side performs much better from a transparency POV than any metal or wooden coupling disc (a.k.a. speaker spike floor protector) I've tried for the application. It's very effective, and I think it will perform very well as an interface with the Neuance platform. I look forward to your findings if you might decide to give it a try.
I haven't tried that, but certainly will. Never got the chance this last weekend to try the disc/BDR/Grungebuster combo, so I have a number of things left to try. Thanks for the suggestion!
I think these are what's under the Nott' platform. I bought them so long ago I can't remember for sure. But then I can't remember what I had for breakfast either....
