Aluminum Mounting Plates Are Here

I just received a package of aluminum mounting plates today.  The hot-end mounting groove slides into the large groove and the slots are for the screws to hold the mounting plate in the extruder.  I decided to have slots as some extruders do not have the screw holes in the same location as the holes in other mounting plates.

I have noticed that the hot-end fits very snug and some filing is required in order to properly fit the hot-end to the mounting plate.  I believe this is because the mounting groove was originally designed around the use of laser-cut plywood.  As plywood is compressible, the fit wasn't a problem before.
