The fit between the 1-1/4" tubes on the bandsaw and the holes I put in the bridge of course had a tiny bit of slop -- enough to let the bandsaw rock back and forth perceptibly. I drilled in sideways, and used 2.5" 1/4-20 bolts as set screws to allow holding the bandsaw tight. The bolts are machine screws, but hold their threads just fine over that much wood. I used a bit of bar soap on the threads to make them easier to turn. (Ignore the two holes in the upper piece of the bridge. I goofed and drilled the wrong board first time around.)
