I am sure you all have gone down this road!
I need a angle plate for my horizontal mill. 12"X 12" X minimum 1" thick plates.
What would be the best way to build this angle plate? Normally I would cut the plates, square them up on the mill and then weld them together with the braces on the back. Then I would heat it in an oven to 700 plus degrees and let it cool slowly. After that I would bolt it down on the mill and face the two sides.
I then thought maybe I would be better to bolt it together and not weld.
So how would you all build one?
