One option is milling channels somehow haha, and then bolting a thin aluminum sheet to the base, somehow sealing the channels so they don't leak, and then somehow attach a hose to the base plate edge.

Or you could do the testing with the base plate sitting in water. It could get to 100 degC, and then would definitely hold there, because it takes a ton of energy to evaporate water.
