    I'm prejudiced but let me say it anyway Pretty!

    By the way, last time I checked, you can post the photos in line if you resave each photo to be less than a megabyte.

    You can also post links to images so they appear as images instead of just links, which is a bit more cohesive than linking off and coming back repeatedly. That also works around size limits.

    I have no idea how to do any of that in this forum, very different than my PB forums. or at least from what I have experienced.

    Very pretty! If I had access to a router big enough to cut that, I'd make the plates thicker so the connections could be tapped and screwed instead of using the awfully annoying little nut holders that make assembly take forever.

    Every BigBox owner needs a WowStick

    There are a couple different models and they go on sale at places like BangGood.com fairly often. Sometimes for under $20 USD for the basic model. Speeds up panel removal immensely.

    While nice it still wouldn't beat an alu frame with the holes drilled sideways into it and tapped. The less parts the better.
    But yes, these holes would be a pain to produce on a machine.

    I like doing the nut trap assembly, its calming.
