I have to put float bearing then torch plate. USe magnets, and he wants to do 45 degree angle cuts. So I will add a wedge so he can just remove the torch, stick the wedge (with magnet) and stick the torch plate( with magnets) on.

Sounds nice theoretically, I don't know how well it will work though.

Here Bob, A couple of DXF's for you to mount THCADS on a DIN rail (single and double). Looks like you might need them.
Designed to use a Meanwell metal Din Rail mount.

Yeh but the THCAD has a different pitch between holes so JT's mounts won't work with the THCAD...Hence my plasma cuttable templates but heck I'm sure you can make do with a router for now! I used 1.6mm Ally sheet metal.

It seems the difference between JT's and my DXF is that his is very expensive in terms of the DIN rail they use.

If you cut the mount and used one of those clips to mount the plate, you would run the THCAD perpendicular with the rail


This layout makes more sense to me.
