Today, I completed my starter mount. This mount began life as a solid block (2"x4"x7") of 6061-T6 aluminum. It is now what I call the mother load of all starter mounts. This is one strong mount and should never bend like the previous one I had, that bent at 18 hours of use and caused an oil leak. Believe it or not, but this mount was carved from the solid aluminum block, using only a table saw, a router, and a drill press. Not to shabby for being made with common shop tools.  I do have to give a friend of mine a lot of credit for teaching me how to do it with just those tools. Some surfaces are not mirror finished and I did not want to spend the rest of my life polishing them to one. This mount has about 10 hours time in making it, but it was well worth all the effort.
