I was lucky enough to snag a nice 1" thick aluminum tooling plate slab on craigslist for only $1/pound! Then I used some aluminum extrusions to mount it. I'll be drilling and tapping the t-slot extrusions and spoil mdf next. Then, I'll surface mill the mdf and I'll be golden. I'm very excited with how it's turning out!
Yes/No. I didn't surface mill the plate, nor put the mounting holes in it. As it was used from craigslist, I opted to use the holes it had. I did use the machine to drill the pilot holes that I will tap to hold down the track and mdf spoil stripes.
