Metal cut. I have changed the drawing to 6mm .and the motor mounting holes to a frame 90 B14 Flange motor With the 6mm steel plate I had to weld the body together.Only fault I have found after the metal were cut is the arc on the plenum is faulty and now, can't tilt .I will rectify that in the future

Awesome setup and great to see another Aussie build. Mine is still a WIP.

One thing I see may be problem with yours is your tracking wheel doesn't appear to be crowned based on what I can see in the photo. It may present as an issue moving forward, same for the drive wheel, but please keep us updated - I'd love to know how it goes. Where did you pick up your wheels from?

My setup has blown the budget a little bit to be honest, but it is what it is! haha
