Been Around the Block
Mockup of how the jig will be assembled, then tacked together. I decided to only tack it, it is plenty strong, and it will be easier to cut apart and disassemble.
Hi Doc,That solid alloy plate near the pivot is going to take a ton of heat to weld properly and i would be worried that the bearing bore will distort. Have you considered machining new pivot points and welding those on instead of resuing the stock ones? I undersize the pivot and machine the bores after welding so i can ensure concentricity and roundness of the bores. Not trying to be rude, just wondering if this had been considered.
