    The Aluminum I got out of a 5’x10’ sheet of amazing 6061 and it was around $120. I got the parts laser cut and filed them out as well. So I can do a set of:

    1. Dewalt 611 plate @ 1/4”                    Qty. 1

    2. Y plate @ 1/4”                                     Qty. 2

    Total: $170

    Compatible for 25.4

    I am located in Los Angeles, Ca. So shipping I’ll ship in state free of charge. Out state let me know where so I may get it see how I can help

    I live in Hawaii and the high humidity has caused the mdf to swell and distort before I got a chance to use my low rider so I’d like to go to aluminum.

    The picture appears to show two 1/4 pieces sandwiched together for a 1/2” side piece. Is that what your doing? Does that mean your including four 1/4” side pieces.

     

    Thanks,

    Austin

    Since I got the parts cut from a high grade aluminum, 1/4″ is strong enough. To do wood and foam, but if you want to get better results with cutting and milling metal and reducing vibrations then get 2 sets and combine them.

    I’m interested in a set or two please. I’m in Massachusetts. How would 2 sets change the build though, if at all? Does it change any other dimensions when building?

    The 2 sets i had made have been sold already. Best way to get it near you would be to contact a local laser cutter and give them dxf files of the plates. I’ll have a few batch’s made by next month to post.

     

    To answer your question about strength and compatibility :

    Option 1.  I would recommend placing 1 layer 1/4″ mdf and 1 layer 1/4″ Aluminum to keep original sizing.

    Option 2. Use only 1 set of 1/4″ aluminum plates with shorter machine screws.

    Option 3. Get 2 Sets and combine them and not worry about any changes.

     

    Hope This Helped Out!
