Surreal colour. Why is that?Interesting approach using just the single hole at the top. My tangs have shoulders and theoretically the lift part will hook on and then mine will pivot down and hook at the bottom to a loop (Chain link) at the bottom.

This is just a trial on a piece of scrap milled with LinuxCNC. The first few inches of the angle would be cut away so that it can clear the sides of the furnace. The one on the right will be the mirror image.
My 6# is lifted with a different type of holder since the furnace body lifts up. I can pick it up and pour from the side. I will make the part that goes around the crucible removable and create a larger one for the #8.

The motor mount plate is 10.5" x 7.375" for the 1.8kW AC Servo. This discussion should probably be on the Mill conversion thread but I thought since I'm casting these parts I figured a series of photos (of the mistakes too) showing conception to pattern to casting was better here. Once the machining starts I'll resume on the G3616 thread.That looks just like my mini mill belt drive conversion mount .... what are the dimensions on it?
