generic lifter plates?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some generic lifter/risers (doenst need to be a full plate) that I can drill through. Say 10-15mm of lift. Any ideas, homebrew plates are also an option, but I dont know what material to use. Anybody got any leads? Thanks!

kitchen cutting boards.

I cut them to match my solly's back in the day and drilled through them. I even competed BM on that set up.

I have a pair of EPB Powerbooster plates new in the box with all the hardware. It's yours for $10 to cover the shipping. Some shops have the mounting jigs for them. An experienced tech can free-mount them easily. These were samples, so it's no loss for me. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

A second for samurai's suggestion: check out your local hardware store for a domestic cutting / chopping board. They are 10 or 12mm thick, made of HDPE and are often available in a selection of colours for cutting different things - meat, fish, veg etc.

Ideal and cheap!

Check the yellow pages in your area for plastics suppliers. The material you want is Delryn, it's easily cut using standard woodworking tools. You can shape it with a router or shaper, plane it for thickness, and such.

If you are lacking the woodworking tools, check your local vo-tech or high school- alot of them have woodworking programs and students can earn "extra credit" doing a project with your supplied materials and directions.
Just be prepared for mistakes and buy some extra material.
