I am a new owner of an SP15 and need a bed plate for the press which has a galley height bed. I’ve been lurking around here for a little while and see that I need a plate made from cold rolled steel with a thickness of .050″. Should I order the plate in the exact dimensions of the press bed (15 x 31½”)? My concern is that if it’s exact to the bed specs, it will be tight trying to fit it in. Is that silly of me?
Many thanks in advance,
