Hi Mark,

I think it is the 10” but, unlike others for sale at the time, that wasn't in the item's title (on ebay) but the seller's description sounded promising. As a double check, I asked the seller to make another, unambiguous measurement for me, which they kindly did, which gave me more confidence to order. If possible, I think I'd still aim to double check the length with your seller. Perhaps the easiest measurement to ask for is with the mounting plates fully tucked under, as per the photo, the overall length of the original is 10”. For the replacement, as I think you can just see in the photo, this measurement is a tiny bit longer.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,

Sorry for the long delay in responding. Thanks for that information. I think the 10" Stanley ones look good so will get them in.

Thanks for all your help,

Mark

Hi Mark, thank you, always pleased to help.

As promised, a few photos of the just finished table – original front leg, front spring bracket and rear claw catch in use, everything else new. The groove in the carpet behind the front leg is where the front leg used to sit.

Thanks again to all who contributed to this thread as the inputs given, served not only to help obtain some of the parts but also gave me an additional nudge to set about making it.

All best,

Peter
