The quick attach assembly.

Here I am aligning the hinge brackets. I did not have a single piece of 1.25" diameter rod so I squared off the ends of a few pieces, including two that were 1" diameter and added 3/8"-16 holes. I was then able to join them with short pieces of threaded rod. This worked out well.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

I have laid out the trim line for the unwanted portion of the quick attach plate and am drilling holes at each change of direction. The holes will allow the saw blade to rotate and provide a desirable radius in the inside corners.

I did not expect there to be this much stress. You can see here the curve that must now be straightened.

I was not happy with the result of my straightening. After bringing the pin holes to the correct spacing of 20.5" I found the plates were not in alignment.

A close look will show the flanges with the holes are not inline with each other.

My fix was to replace the strap that joined the two plates and add a new strap to the bottom.
