Homemade Robo-focus Bracket for VC200L

After seeing pictures of Alan Smallbone's focuser bracket I decided that I wanted something a bit more substantial than thin sheet metal supporting my focuser so I fabricated a bracket from 6061 aluminum stock.
 
I first made this aluminum base plate with 4 #10-24 tapped holes and attached it to the bottom of the focuser by removing the 4mm screws and replacing them with longer ones.
The completed bracket. Also visible is the 1/4" shaft coupling.
Removal or installation of the focuser can be accomplished in under a minute by removing the 4 #10-24 socket cap screws on the bottom and loosening the shaft coupling set screw. The base plate is left in place.
