Well, I have no idea exactly what it is, but I'm loving the blueprints!

Please fill us in on the details and more pics as you progress (you may be in the middle of posting, so I'll check back in a while). Looking good!

-David

I drilled some 1/4 inchish pilot holes then 7/8". I have a set of those bits that look like end mills they are with my son
to cope tubing for his senior project.

I used a lever to make sure things were square. Who was asking about Two hole? I just held the level at the bottom of the 2 holes. I used a portaband to put the chisel point on the 1" threaded rod.

EEK, a clear violation of the picture posting guidelines.

Cutter will be along soon.

There is more than 1 way to post pictures. If I remember correctly these are attached and not embedded. Our picture posting is different than others and we attach and host onsite here and do not use offsite hosting like the other sites I have heard of. ( yes there are other sites, I hear of them from time to time) If you scroll down when you reply you will see a blue link where the picture is in the post. It shows it is attached to our server.

Usually all the pictures are posted 5 at a time at the bottom. This is just a different style of attachment. Still attached and hosted at SFT That way the thread will still be viable as long as SFT is up and running.

I did not see who all was online so I put this out for now. I am subject to learning new things as well.

Please continue to post pictures it looks good.

Have you done a series on your belt sander?

There isn't anything wrong with your pics. It's just not as common to see them that way. It is an accepeted way of posting pics though. So all is good.

Did you find out what the pieces are for?

Yes, they are pipe jacks. They do not fit because I was asked for 7/8 holes. They need one inch. Out comes the Dewalt hole stretcher.

I found this out at 7 am.

Nice build. Welds look great. Also its a whole lot better to need 1" hole and drill them 7/8" than the other way around!!!
