 Holes are 0.75" on center.  Every hole is tapped 1/4"-20.

NOTE: when bare aluminum plates are installed on a non-aluminum surface such as a bare machine table these plates must be used with a galvanic corrosion inhibitor (e.g. dielectric spark plug grease) and be removed periodically to inspect for condition and/or re-apply the corrosion inhibitor. We recommend doing this every three months.

Note: Hardware not included. Designed for use with low profile socket head cap screws (SHCS) and T-Nuts according to your machine table. Please see drawing above for specific slot sizes to determine appropriate mounting hardware. All aluminum plates come with 6 adapter washers (McMaster P/N 91525a320) for machines with smaller t-nuts. Plate does not contain locating bores for 1/4" dowel pins.
