Today is my R.D.O. and I’m kinda bored, so made this thread to yammer about my little baseplate project.
I have decided to make different angle baseplates have the hanger axle remain in exactly the same spot at 50/48/46/44/42 and 40 degrees.
Went to upwork.com and paid a Belarusian a total of $46AUD to have SLDPRT model made from scratch.
His first render for me was this.
Told him that was real nice but not quite right, and yes he actually thought the axle bolt goes into the kingpin hole.
After some further explaining he went back to work and the rest only took him about two hours after a few back and forth editing. These baseplate can house Calibers and I would assume TB hangers as well.
It is not a copy of the Precision Caliber baseplate at all.(Different shape, designed to keep axle in exactly the same position and pivot designed for venom pivot cups)
Apart from visual differences, the pivot hole is designed for Venom pivot cups.
After we got the 50 degrees done, instructed him via image below on what to do for all the other degrees baseplate.
Got these back.

What do you folks think?
