So I find myself making a home-made table for my new wood lathe, and I'm needing a slotted bracket as shown in the pic below (supporting the motor, on right)


Anyone have an idea on what it would cost to make one? Or suggestions where I might find something usable?

Thanks in advance

You could buy one like this: http://www.grainger.com/product/DAYTON-Adjustable-Pivot-Motor-Base-6YTR0
Or, you could buy some door hinges and make it yourself.

Here's a sketch of one I made.
