    Regarding the baseplate... Get on the net or look in yellow pages for 'metal supermarket' in the UK, that's where I got my baseplate from. They have branches all over the country.

    They will cut any thickness to whatever size you want. Mine's 12mm aluminium approx 19" x 14", cost was about 50. While you're there it's worth getting a few thin bits cut to act as spacers for aligning beam heights.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the info guys.
    Jem, I could find anyting smaller than 34 /94 inches long... How or where did you specify it to be smaller than that?

    jian725, yes I would like the big ones, where can I get some ?

    The answer was in my reply... "They will cut any thickness to whatever size you want".

    Simplified Instructions...

    Try here: http://www.metalsupermarkets.com/MSC...gion=UK&Map=UK

    Get in car and drive to nearest branch

    Go to counter

    Say " can I have a piece of aluminium plate (insert size required here) please.

    Wait until they cut it for you

    Pay the man some money

    Get back in car with nice piece of shiney aluminium

    Drive home

    Get out of car with aluminium

    Go into house/workshop/shed

    Get ruler out and plug drill in

    Measure, mark and drill holes (do this step twice just to be sure of correct measurements)

    Mount lasers using nuts and bolts that you collected on way back from metal supermarket (you did remember to do this didn't you?).

    Stand back and admire workmanship

    OK ok I may be asking for a little to much help...but this is the first time I ever done this and I'm not even close to being a tradesman. I have managed to get all the other bits together, although admitedly with asking untold questions..
    Anyway, thanks for the info...the aluminium has been the hardest thing to source...

    Sorry Graham, I perhaps owe you an apology for a very condescending and sarcastic reply. I was just feeling a little down today, and out popped a reply that was intended to take the P*ss and be funny, It was meant in the best possible taste though

    It's not that long ago since I started along this torturous route myself, and I appreciate that getting everything together without making too many expensive mistakes can be a nightmare. So, I promise not to use my warped sense of humour on you again

    Please ask away all you like, we all had to start somewhere, and believe me when I say It really is all worth it in the end !

    Jem, perhaps I should have used a few emotiocons to show my amsuement at your post as I did take it in jest in the way I think it was meant

    I know I ask more questions that the avergae joe, and I'm not afraid to admit I'm a plonker somtimes hehe.

    Everyone has been great on here and as someone once said when i joined "Ive come to the right place"

    Happy hobbying
