About our custom plates
This sim rig uses a number of custom plates which you can make from wood or metal.
I offer optional CNC files, so you can give these to your local laser or water jet cutting service, so you can have the files cut locally saving you shipping costs. Note you are only licensed to cut one set of plates for personal use.
Water jet cutting, produces a nice clean edge with a finish like medium grade sand paper, laser cutting can be more cost effective because it faster and produces a near mirror edge finish on steel or aluminium.
I suggest cutting the plates from 3mm (1/8") aluminium or low carbon steel.
