    Top plate is finished. Excuse the finger prints. LOL.

    I'm at 600 grit. I'll get to 2000 grit wet and dry, then compound and buff with automotive buffers/polishers. It's looking good.

    No idea at this point. I liked the red painted redwood base with the polished plate and black transformer covers. Polishing is a lot of work! LOL

    DIY Sakuma-Schade 6V6 Amp

    This week's update! @Redboy . LOL. Bought a 60mm cutter like the one in the link. It cut a real clean hole. Now I need to sand the plate and decide if I'm going to power coat or polish it.

    I'll have to cut it. Online Metals Grand Prairie Tx. First time they sent me a out of square plate. 16x10.5 cost me 58.00. :(

    Thanks for checking the cut. Thanks for the link too! I ran into another problem today. The top plate is not square. It has one square corner. Guess QC is just out the window.

    That would be great. I'd hate to ruin the top plate.

    I'm in south Texas. The TCT is one of the brands I looked at. I would think it would stay centered with the cut. The can caps are 60mm and outer lip in 62.5 so accuracy is a must.

    Aluminum top plate arrived today! Cut to the exact measurements too. I need to find a nice hole saw to cut the 60mm holes for the Temco can caps. I'd like a nice cutter that doesn't walk around much when cutting. I'll use a drill press to cut them. Does anyone have an idea of what type of hole...

    I was just showing pics of the parts. I still haven't decided on the layout. Rona sucks! Hope everyone is ok.
