I found 8" x 8" x 1/4" steel plate on Ebay today for about $8 each, bought two to mount the grinder on the work bench. It will be hinged so that it swings down when not in use. Thank you David for getting me moving.

It looks great and thanks for the drawing of the cowl scoop. Got it printed and installed, this is success.
Once again had the paint matched and again not good but it will have to do. Thankfully it is on the bottom.

Got to pat myself on the back today. A flying buddy was at a standstill on a scratch build with a hammer 20. Trying to convert to electric and was stumped on the cowl. I’ve had a hard time trying to cast and bend compound curves from multiple construction planes but alas!! I figured it out! From design to a printed part took me two evenings and multiple CAD crashes. But now we understand each other LOL.

Nice work. Sometimes simple parts get confusing just from overthinking it. Looking at it I would think a firewall on one sketch and then an offset workplane where the spinner would be with a simple sketch there and just loft between them. I recently went off the deep end into designing in Fusion. I'm loving what it can do.

That is simply awesome! Good work!

And yes... sorta. What you mentioned was what it did, except making that skin conform to two convex curves that I wanted to incorporate along that new surface without adding construction planes. This helped give it a slight bull nose look. If that even makes sense. lot of different lingo in separate programs. CAD is so much fun!

While waiting for some parts for my Laser 115 I decided to start a new project. Opened the box and did a quick check on all the parts. Looks like everything is there.
It takes forever now days to get anything and on top of that the prices are going up fast.
