    There is a cast iron/steel tower about 4" diameter, maybe 10" high, behind each backing plate. It appears to serve no purpose. Anyone know what it's for? Thank you.

    Normally I would include a photo. However, this came as an email request from my nephew, with a photo, and I can't figure out how to get it off my email on to this board. I'll keep trying.

    That pic is too small to see anything.
