    Has anyone had any luck using the motor mount plate from inventables? Link I ordered one because the open parts store is currently sold out of the gantry plates. Their motor mount plate seems like a good fit for a router. It pretty much a combination of the motor mount plate and the gantry plate in one. I didn't have a piece of 20x40 to test it with but I did put in 2 20x20's and there is a 4mm gap. This is coming from the difference in v-slot and maker slide. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it - I was thinking of adding a piece of plywood (1/8in) and then adjusting the space with the eccentric spacers. But this doesn't really seem like a good solution.

    Also does anyone know anything about an update/restocking to the gantry plates?

    Can you not just drill a new pair of holes for the wheels 4mm closer in?

    I just totally had a brain fart. They have a second set of holes that are lower and so I got it to fit. Now to order some 20x40s and work on my V-Slot/Shapeoko hybrid.
