Made some progress today on the plate. Countersunk the 3/8" tapped holes for the flat head allen screws that mount the plate to the 2" round. Milled a 1/4" slot for the key stock for quick alignment of parts on the plate.

I think I have come up with a method of providing support at the end of the plate that is hanging out 8" from the 2" round. It will work at any angle of the plate. More to come on that after I get back to the project.

Finally got some better temps so finished up the project. You will notice that there are only three 3/8-16 screws attaching the plate to the 2" round. I had designed, drilled and tapped the 2" round and the plate for 5 screws. Two screws will not screw down properly as the holes are slightly off center. Fortunately the two outside and center screws fit perfectly and hold the plate very well. After I drilled the 2" round and then the plate I wished I had not designed it for 5 screws, as I knew that 3 would be plenty strong enough.

This one heads to MetalWolf down in TX tomorrow. Kinda of a trade for the spindle square he sent me. Next I have to make one for me when spring hits here.

Looks great!!!!! on something like that I would ether tack it or drill and tap for one screw, tighten it then use a tap drill for the rest of the holes well its together, If you wanted to you could locktite a studs in the holes and re drill and tap.

I am about ready to get a DRO for the mill. Had I had a DRO on the mill when doing the holes everything would be right on the money. As you mentioned, I could have done the holes differently, and clearly I should have, but the 3 holes that are right on will be plenty strong enough without the other two.

When I make mine, not only will there be only 3 holes, but also this time I will be using 5/16-18 flat head allen screws instead of the 3/8-16. The whole mill thing is new to me so still in a learning process. I would guess MetalWolf won't be bothered by only having the 3 screws.

Well, Chris. Won't be the first time someone said. I was missing a screw... er two...So, they say.

But, I say... Maybe just a few loose ones Is all... So three screws are better than none...

It looks pretty Bueno good to me... Thank you! Compadre...

Your very welcome Randall. Be in the mail tomorrow morning. I will pm you a tracking number. This is not in a bag, so I expect this package will survive the trip fine.
