Distance between plates?

Postby Guyross » Wed Sep 02, 2020 1:56 pm

I am getting height challenged, but would like to add a couple maybe three more plates. What distance between plates do I need for a 4” bubble plate? Can I get away with 100mm? Many thanks.

100mm will run ok (plenty out there with that), 150 would have better separation and allow more scope for turning up the power

Guess you will not sell many plates if that is the case!
