I'm trying to scale some lettering from a photo and the builder's plate is in it. It's on an S1. Can anyone provide the measurements of the length and width of a similar plate so I can scale my lettering dimensions correctly? Thanks.

Perfect. Thanks.

YW. BTW- the extra 1/8" is for the draft angle. At the face, it's 6" x 12".
