Thanks, I also used send cut send to order the cutout “plates” made of 3.2mm chromoly steel. I designed the pieces in such so they slip in/on together . Almost interlock but not quite lock.neat build so far -
TIP: I have used emachineshop in the past to make custom parts for my Exocet. I stumbled upon sendcutsend the other day. I just ordered an adapter plate in mdf as a mockup. Yep, they CNC parts in MDF. MDF is $30 vs $200 for the aluminum part. I have a tiny amount invested to test my design. Once i check it, I will push the button for the $200 part.
That is a good advice to spend a little to order mock up pieces with inexpensive material before ordering the finished product .
