no sorry, when I get to the computer I can post it... usually 5-7 days before I get back to machine but will do. It fitted to rails so you'll have to "kinda" unassailable but was well worth it! just take measure of inside slot an cut floor board and your read to go. BTW I say floor board NOT plywood for flooring cost a bit more but not warp as bad, use what you want but my engraver is 65X50 (big board needed lol

BTW it was ment to "snap on"  but didn't go as plan. A buddy of mine has requested a bolt-on version so once done I'll add it also if interested

Thanks for posting it. The snap on looks good but could be difficult to remove if needed. I am interested in a bolt on version.

BTW, I am going to have nottingham add this to the ever growing list of printable parts for our machines

I heard you wintered in a ice fishing shack and used the laser to lure the "big" ones to your hole.

I use feet in a slightly different manner. Simple 20mm spacing of holes in right angle material. Serves as both feet and corner brackets. Prefered material is 3/4 x 1/8 aluminum but will use 3D printed parts to prototype.

A 5 hole printed part takes about 90 minutes to grow or about 6 hours total. Trip to hardware store (Home Depot) is about 2 hours. The cutting, finishing to size on mill, and drilling (gcode already done) takes another 3 hours (not my mill). So it is actually quicker, stronger, and better looking to go metal. Sounds like justification to SO for getting a CNC vertical mill.

The angled aluminum is about $2.50 / foot or you can get pre-drilled parts from openbuilds is various lengths. Attached is picture of some that have been used. The aluminum  part was the first one I made and the holes were centered drilled based on the outside dimension. Should have drilled to accommodate standard 5mm cap screws which needs to be offset about 5mm.
