    He could have at least screwed some blocks to the deck too buck the 2x4. Not a tie down method that's common.
    Curious too know what D.O.T. would think.
    Grade 7 chains across the base and straps over the table and another around the top.
    Should have had some rope or straps around the 2x4's as a safety in case a wood brace popped out. It could end up through a windshield.
    Definitely a different approach.
    I once used some 4x4's too buck a lathe from tipping side to side between fenders but also strapped.

    That type of trailer does suck when tying down between fenders. Needs anchors welded on

    On edit it appears that he may have tied the 2x4's too the straps

    I knew that this had to be a "Don" thread as soon as I read the title!

    Not sure if that is good or bad, just "so"....

    It also has the ram blocked to the table and no support from the Knee to the base. The nut on the vertical screw is going to be in fine shape after bouncing down the road.

    This has "Harry home shop" written all over it

    And that is why I own my own rigging and have always done my own load outs. On machines less than 6K pounds it's 5/16" load chain and ratchet binders all the way. Rubber livestock decking liberally applied so the chains don't scar up the load. Load tied down fore and aft, top and bottom

    I carry lots of tee nuts, forged eye bolts and clevis in assoreted sizes and dunnage all very cheap insurance.
