Post by: pvanweelden on October 02, 2016, 09:17:12 PM
Dave was a machine today! Bending metal, cutting with the plasma, grinding, and welding!(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/3e33e8b911189d96b2ee53c9b404b871.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/bbeb33e17820681f0e78f6a7abdca973.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/8a8c9df0fa6aa3eadde0ba5a5650cdcc.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/76021bcd39dadbdd0122c132e6c55aae.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/df6921202686bfa5a219204117a83807.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/9399393f0c7ae5b0101f7d1f32b23426.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161003/5c276c58651de10fde92882f59a65ffb.jpg)

That was freaking awesome, Paul.  Thanks for taking the time to work with me and teach me some fab-ing skills.  My welds might not be perfect, but I think they're good enough for who they're for!

They get a 2 minute break every 4 hours, and spend it on the trampoline that management has provided for them :)

I want one, but I don't think the wife would enjoy it taking her parking spot ;)

I found a guy who only charges minimal for setup, if I supply the drawing files and metal.
It will take about 2 hours to cut out a 4x4 sheet.

They are still very labor intensive to build by hand. Others on the market sell for $40 (but the doors don't go flat against the wall) up to $130. I would like to see less than 80 each as a msrp.
Right now, I have a few I would sell at $40 each. You need 1 per pair of doors. 1 bracket for jk, 2 brackets for jku. And there is a different model for tj, yj, cj

Ok let's get an order made. Could you add 2 to my shopping cart since I have a JKU. I will contact you when I go to DSM to set up a pick up time.

Christian, I know you wanted to a part of the fab n tune, so here's a few pics as I started on yours tonight.(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161015/22366f07dcd8db5afe5dd1dca10d45aa.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161015/ff135046244b076e4582b951f6c113cd.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161015/3a4eb5ca535236c42537abc04e04cb52.jpg)
A lot of grinding and a little welding and they will be done :)

Dave can vouch for how time intensive these are to build, as his two took 3.5 hours, with me showing him how to make them. With cnc, the time is cut, but it's a huge cost up front.

If you make that middle gusset with all straight cuts you would save a bunch of time grinding. Make a template a little smaller so you can just clamp and plasma all around it. That would also allow you to stack up all the gussets next to each other and save a cut and material.

Thanks, i have a Masonite template for my hand plasma, but it doesn't cut clean, so tons of grinding later. Love my little lotos but if I continue doing much by hand, I will get a hypertherm
You can kind of see the template in the pic of Dave below . I try to set up jigs everytime I repeat a process. I made a fixturing jig for my drill press.(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161017/92cf80498cd8a6664e636bcfd527bcd7.jpg)
