We got the second table welded up. Jason got plenty of welding practice doing that one.

We cut some tabs out on our plasma table and got the chassis mounted to the table.

We started bending and notching tubing. I've been notching in my bridgeport mill. I had a notcher but it broke. I haven't been real motivated to buy another one when the bridgeport is just about as quick and seems to do a better job. It will also notch anywhere in a bend.

It's really handy for notches like this on short piece that are hard to get a plane of bend bracket on. No problem with lining up their rotation.

It's also really easy to put a 1-2-3 block on the table to line up multiple pieces. Keep in mind we're building two of these at once. It's nice when everything like this fits together nicely with no grinding at all.

Angles are also no problem. Just swing the head. It's 4 bolts to undo.

We got the front hoop and top bars stuck on the chassis.

It's starting to look like something.

It's been way to long but we managed to get some buggy stuff worked on the other day. I'm self employed so sometime I really don't have time to do anything. I own two different businesses and this year they have both grown a lot. Hopefully as this trend continues, I'll be able to find some more help and have more time for myself again.

We used my cnc mill to make the piece that the chain adjuster slides in. I actually cut the 1/2" slots with a 1/4" end mill. I was able to program it to helic into the material then walk around the slots.

We also made all the rear arm spacers on the lathe. I forgot to take any pictures. Once we had those and the chain adjuster tube, we assembled the rear carrier.
