Re: flat ground aluminum plate

Here's how I did my aluminum table. Setting up the main table wasn't too bad. drilling and tapping all the holes was quite tedious. It has proven to work pretty well so far!

Re: dvdsnyd's Shapeoko 3 #23 Upgrades and Custom Aluminum Ta

That plate looks great. I'm glad someone found my tutorial useful. I talk about leveling the machine in my upgrade thread too. Thanks. I've been following your thread closely and have been referencing it quite a bit! Really appreciate all of your hard work in documenting your process and procedures...
