Default Al mounts

Anyone here have any ideas? I posted this on glow engines (or is that "nitro" engines.. ) to no avail. I need good Al mounts.



Hi folks,

Tatone and CB are now under the Mecoa roof and not much is available at the moment.

Are there any current manufacturers of decent aluminum mounts for .40 and .60 size engines of various sorts? One particular need is pattern .60 mounts as they were sometimes called, for OPS and other chunky-cased engines.

Thanks for any help,

MJD

I want to find one that is commercially available so I can design the firewall of an aircraft on my drafting screen to fit, you see. Might have to CNC custom mounts, dunno yet. Trying to finish up a speed design that will fit more than just one config.

How about taking a trip you your local metal yard and look for I beam that you could slice up?
