If it runs correctly, nothing. Why would I want them to do anything?

Because you'd always be waiting for the other shoe to drop. The piece came
from somewhere, perhaps somewhere structural. Failure could come without
notice. Accidental success is the bane of every repairman's existence.

I'm in a similar circumstance myself, having assembled my new drillpress
with two long bolts left over. Though identified in the materials list,
there were no instructions as to where to put them. It seems to run right,
but why would anyone cost-conscious include extra hardware? Waiting for an
answer from them.
