Yes. Once if I wanted something I had to build it cause many things I wanted did not exist or were unaffordable...and I enjoy it from a creative point of art I guess..and you are not too bad at it ...mmm let me count up the projects of yours I know of...

Thanks that helps.

(If you wish to bolt from below but I suppose you could tap the plate.)

Cutting a 60mm hole in the plates is the fun part.
Far too flash Ray. Very nice but I have no where to get plate easy.
