Homemade aluminum foot strips

This was something I had been meaning to try for a while, but I needed my belt/disc sander and had lent it to Steele 😉

Here is my results…

I made a full set for my R5, didn’t have quite enough of the right size aluminum stock for another set for R2. These turned out pretty good, but are not 100% perfect. The angle on one end of the outer strips and the center strips is supposed to be 55 degrees, but my sander’s guide plate thingy only goes up to 45, so I just did 45. The other angle is 35, and it did that one just fine. These got HOT when beveling the edges, so next time I’ll wear gloves, cuz I was playing hot potato with these a few times while making them 😛

I’ll still need to drill out the holes for the hose fittings, but that I’ll leave for another day 🙂
