There are not the usual 3 holes underneath where feet go.

I would nice to be able to find a few photos of a real 58503A. Does
anyone have a known genuine one?

I suspect this will go back to China, so I'm not going to spend much
time on it, but I have slid the the case back 25  mm or so, to get a
bit more ventilation. The electronics runs much cooler. I would not
want it to overheat before it gets back to China.
