After seeing some of the Aluminum plates popping up on the forum, I was thinking of some other routes to go aside from the garolite/aluminum. The reason I was thinking about steel plates, is the fact that it is cheaper than plate aluminum in most cases. My only reservations on the steel is weight. For any of the guys w/ the aluminum plates, about how much do they weigh? I was thinking steel plates could be laser cut, with a 'webbing' style cutout in unused spaces around the plate to reduce weight, while still being extremely rigid.
