I backed my trailer part of my mill into the shed to work on my carriage
I then cut and notched a bit of box section for the top then welded it in
This was my first attempt at upside down welding (MIG)
I welded 2 braces onto the bottom and 2 on top to hold it while welding.
Lifted it off then welding in 2 corner braces
I then setup my saw head to weld in
I then made 2 gussets out of 5mm plate and welded them in
I have decided to use larger 6 stud wheels that are 700mm ( 27" ish ) outside butI have already welded stubs to a shaft for hubs that I have, so I need to make some hub spaces.
I started by cutting 2 200mm (8") out of 12mm plate
Our circle cutting jig for out plasma couldn't go down small enough so I had to free hand them. To true them up I drilled a 16mm hole in the center and held it on a piece of threaded rod on our "New Lathe"
I then bored the middle out to be a tight fit on the hub and then drilled 10 holes 4 to line up with my hubs and 6 to line up with my rims
I then turned a lip to be a tight fit on the inside of my rim
I then drilled my hole out to 14mm then tapped them to M16 and cut then cut 20 pieces of M16 rod 40mm for stubs
I also made 2 pulleys for my lifting my saw head
For my adjusting wheel, I made a slide out of 5mm plate
Then made a mounting plate to hold my wheel with u bolts (I made those holes into slots)
