Reading the LR3 documentation, it states: “The YZ Plates can be nearly any thickness”.
I have the opportunity to lasercut these out of 6mm Alu. Because of the above statement, and the fact the XZ plates from the shop are also made of 6mm metal, I believe rigidity won’t be an issue.
Of course the suggested small wood screws will not work in this case. I wonder if I can replace them with some M3 x 20 and some nylock nuts to fit in the drafted holes?
Not sure if the length of 20 would be enough for the 6mm plate plus the linear rail plus the nut…
Obviously I also wonder if I am forgetting something as a reason for not making them out of Alu?
