Help!
Need a machinist to make me a motor plate

Anyone out there who could cut me a back plate for a motor mount? I have a really nice astroflight motor that I bought a while back that came with a partial motor mount. I didn't realize that I needed the back plate until I started a trial fit. The standoffs need to be shortened as well.

I have included a collage of pictures to help explain what I need. I will gladly pay you a fair price for the service rendered. I have attempted to make the plate myself, and failed miserably .

Please contact me via PM or post here if you think you'd like to help me.

Thanks,
Steve

got a chance to finish the legs.
i decided not to cut the original legs (you may want to use them for something else). so, i scrounged around and found a 1/2 drop and made new ones.
i'll probably send it off by this weekend.
on a side note, i haven't had a chance to make the round back plate. when i do, i'll ship it.

Just have to show off the back plate that Jack made for me-the quality is just stunning!


Thanks again Jack!

easy enough... my only concern would be the thread on the end caps.
are there parts or are we fabricating this from scratch?

I'll send the original struts, then you can see if you'll be able to use them. Probably don't need threads, maybe just pint them in or small screws through the tube.

Cheers,
Steve
