Well got the first of the U-Bolts cut bent and threaded. Now I know the steps can knock out the other 5. May do one at 1 3/8 but not sure.
Though I would need to heat and bend. Nope! Uses a tool Father and I got about 39 years ago. Only uses it one but came as the free gift from the Pop Science book club. Slicker than goose greese or teflon! ^_^
Waqs goign to thread first but figure out that could use the die to put threads on it after I bent it!
The ears have dried enough to do some light sanding etc. And see if I got them right. Still need slots for the U Bolts but about done!
