The 24 x 12 inch plate is the larger version of our 10 x 10 plate. This plate can be used as a standalone work surface when retrofitted to a grinder or drill press, or used in multiples to create a welding table. Each plate is over 3/4” thick with reinforced ribbing.
The holes are spaced 2” apart, diameter of 5/8 to fit BuildPro tooling.
The mounting holes are fitted with non-locating bushings to create the mounting surface:
- Suggested for situations where the plate does not need to be removed often, or does not need to be replaced with great precision to its previous spot.
- Counterbores need to be drilled in the bearing surface with a hole to hole distance varying by no more than +/- 0.002” with no accumulation error.
Pretty much what you expect from Fireball, heirloom quality and burly construction. I am using one of these as a drill press table and welding fixture plate. Makes it possible to fit a real vice on my drill press and other setups are so easy, and it can be easily brought over to my workbench for welding jobs. I was worried it might be too heavy for the drill press but the height adjustment works just fine. My only complaint is that I only have one of these!
