How to stabilize lathe stand? *PIC*

Stuart Johnson
>I built my lathe stand using the Nova plans and have a problem with out of balance pieces. As you can see the legs are 1 1/2 inch thick and 4" wide giving a total of 13" total witdth. When I am roughing out even something slightly oob the lathe rocks back and forth. I think this is caused by a combination of the rather narrow stand combined along with a not real level floor.

What suggestion are there for stabilizing and possibly adding adjustable feet?
