Base Plate
The base plate is drilled for the 3/16" dowel pins as follows;
All hole locations are central to the width and length of the baseplate.
There are a total of twelve holes in the baseplate. They are all 3/16"
except for the two mounting holes. I will leave those hole locations out
because they are dedicated to my particular unit. You can make yours to suit.
Take the left end (facing you) and call it the X reference edge.
Take the front side (facing you) and call it the Y reference edge.
At the intersection of the X and Y edges is our starting point for all hole locations.
