How are you going to bolt the thing together? Drilling SS by hand is no fun.

That's what I assumed, but thought I'd ask anyway.

If they are just plates without anything special, I don't know why it needs to be laser cut. I have 18 gauge 8x8 that were simply cut on the sheer. Then drilled my own holes, tin snip the corner and a dremel to notch for the electrical and it was done. 36 plates with the tin snipes is pretty tough though.

You will be happy with 18 gauge plates. Please share your results.

I got mine at HarborFreight for I think $40 bucks on sale. I have used it a LOT. Much better than a hand drill. I just wish I had the hand chuck instead of the key chuck. At that price it is the work bench model, not the tall floor model. Oh well, still a great tool.
