Open Source electric conversion information

Hey everyone!

I am having a machinist build a transmission adapter plate for my Metro, so I can attach an electric motor to it.

Since the machining will be done on a computer controlled machine, why not save the information as a file which I can upload for other people to use?

Once I have my plate done, I am going to ask the machinist the save out the file for me as a .DXF file. Then I can post it for anyone else who wants to make a Metro adapter plate.

Granted, everyone is going to use a different motor, but the transmission information will still be good.

Maybe there is other information that we can freely share with each other to help make other people's conversions easier.
