    Would you care to share the dimensions on where you drilled the tapped holes on the angle plates to fit the 3 axis plates?
    I've been trying to plot the holes to tap the plates and I am finding that I am apparently dumb as a rock lol
    Admitting the problem is half the battle *sigh*..

    If you're talking on the Y riser plates, I didn't take measurements. I put a couple of screws in the bearing blocks to hold down the angle and then clamped the factory Y plates to the aluminum angle. I then pulled the screws out of the bearing carriages with the Y still clamped to the angle and used the factory Y riser as a template to drill my holes in the angle on my drill press. I did the same thing on the X/Z risers. Is that what you're asking about??

    Also, you're not dumb as a rock. I generated some scrap aluminum angle with holes in the wrong places too. I didn't show that part though... :)

    Yessir, that's exactly what I was asking about.
    Thanks for the response, guess it's time for me to hit harbor freight for some clamps! Lol
