    Hi all
    As I'm coming to the end of my OX build I'm wondering how long the Z plate should be. At present its 12ins long as I bought it separately from the main build so I could re-potion the holes on the Z & X plates so they would line up properly and used the 20 X 60 to make sure everything was lined up correctly.

    Looking at Mark's video his is much shorter than mine (not bragging, really, lol) so I'm wondering if I should cut mine down a few inches. He didn't say in the video how long it actually was, but it was cut off the X brace as it was too long.

    Also the threaded rod will have to be cut to the same length, so I can't do one without knowing the length of the other. Perhaps some one who's done the same build would let me know what they made the length.

    I was unable to open any files in the file section. But its not a problem as I went with 10ins which is 2 ins longer than my Makita router. Looking at it from the front its not that much different from Marks build, so I'll stick with that.

    Thanks a lot.
