    I've seen several comments lamenting the lack of a small 3-wheel plate for use with 40mm sections (mainly among the delta printer crowd) and as it turns out, the hole spacing in the Idler Pulley Plates is ideal for use with mini-V wheels and if you are willing to ream out one of the holes these plates are easily modded for just such a purpose. I used a step bit and the plate cut like butter.
