Need some flat plate. Made my own.

I need some 6mm flat stock to make the motor mounts for my little CNC gantry Mill, so I decided to cast some.

I got heavy shrinkage...

Luckily the pouring spout was long.

The outlet riser was wrongly positioned, as there is some shinkage around it. I'll just chop that bit off and put it back into the ingot pile.

    Looks like it should work fine though. I made a similar one to mount the battery isolator on my work truck.
