Feet or No Feet?

edited 3:20AM in EggHead Forum
This is a continuation of an earlier question I posted.[p]If I sit my Egg on a large brick (in order to clear the spring hinge from the table opening), do I still need to use the three ceramic feet?
The Egg seems much more stable sitting flat on the brick, but I'm worried about possibly damaging the BGE ceramics.
The feet provided are fine until I open the lid, then the center of gravity of the lid shifts backwards, causing the egg to wobble badly no matter how I position the feet.
Any comments?

    I bummed an extra foot from my dealer and they hold mine just fine. And that's all I have mine sitting on in my table.
    Also, you might want to put something in front of the bottom vent to catch any stray hot coal "shooters" coming out. I simply use a piece of aluminum foil.

    Mine sits directly on split bricks, on my cart. I am a little nervous when I move it, but I have had no problems. The thought crossed my mind that maybe some of that gasket material glued to the bottom might create a little cushion. I have not tried this, though - just a thought.

    <p />Galoot,[p]Mine actually sits on FIVE feet - I had the same problem with just three. In the pic you can see two of them.[p]I bought mine from BGE - they were a buck apiece. I was ordering some other stuff at the time, so shipping wasn't an issue.[p]
