    I made this

    But by the time I used it, it was a little worse for the wear....





    The 'wear' was from making....



    Now to drill all of those holes in those washers.

    I figure >$50 invested for what would have cost $250 in faceplates.

    And, thanks to Charlie for the inspiration.

    Are you going to weld all the way around the nuts or just rely on the spot welds at the corners of the nuts? I've got no opinion on that myself, just curious.

    I've a bunch of those nuts and washers out in the shop earmarked for the same thing whenever I can get a round tuit.

    The spot welds should be adequate. I may seal the gaps for vacuum chucking, however.

    Need to borrow the jig? For 1-1/4 nuts.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm sure there's all kinds of scraps in the bin that will do fine.
