Hi,

because I couldn't buy an EM-400 pier adapter plate off the shelf anywhere (I looked but didn't contact anyone) I designed my own and had it made by eMachineshop. It came out real nice. I recommend looking into them if you are contemplating building similar parts. Turnaround was real quick.

That looks like a very nicely done piece, Sander. You've got to be getting really antsy about getting that thing working for you!

Thanks David! Yes, getting anxious to put this monster to use. It's sitting in the den next to me right now, watching TV :)

Sander, what sort of black saddle plate do you have on the EM-400 mount?

Is the dove tail plate black to?

Thanks!
