    I saw in the other thread where someone paid $45 for UHMW! Eeek!
    http://www.drillspot.com/products/44...V9_Sheet_Stock for 1/8
    http://www.drillspot.com/products/51...ed_sheet_stock for 1/4

    Now there is a reason for the 1/4 = I am bolting it down and the countersink head requires some depth.

    I'm working on the second set of hook now and might cut the UHMW today or tomorrow and post a how too then. I did learn a little from the first set and the second set will be slightly different. Just some small changes.

    Yes Body solid punches the holes, so it distorts the metal. I used spacers on the jig to make the area just a hair bigger than 3". There are tight spots and slightly looser spots, but they just slide on.

    Sure, I provided more detail over in BAVE's thread this morning. The SKU # of the UHMW was 517355, although I would have gone for a thinner version if I had to do it again.

    Edit: Don posted links to the actual UHMW product a few posts above. If you want to screw it down, I'd go for the 1/4", but if you want to use adhesive tape, I'd probably pick 1/8". My sheet was slightly warped when I got it, so I had to spend a little effort trying to flatten the entire thing. You don't have to use heat--I found that bending the plastic in the opposite direction seemed to work even when cold.

    Marking holes in the UHMW with a white paint pen because some dope got the holes slightly offset from center. It was cut with a saw the razor knife is for deburring the edges.

    I will take off the plastic and give it a coat of black later.

    It surprises me how many people refuse to buy equipment from Elitefts because its too expensive but they will buy equipment from their competitors, then continue to go on EFS website regulary to educate themselves for FREE

    Nice work Don....much better than the ones that come with it...yours' are more of a true powerlifting J hook.
