Iron Wood and add in some Brass cross pins, properly peen'd would be perfect.
Get a cheap flux core welder and do it right.
Or at least use 3M panel bonding adhesive to handle the flex better than even G/Flex. But that option is almost as expensive as the cheap welder.
Plaka I've always figured a serious lack funds always tends to help create some fairly unique work arounds.
Looking forward to see how it all holds together, good luck with it .
No hard rock maple at all in your offcuts bin? or is what your planning all that's to hand, like the idea of locating pins either end, plus maybe some more laminating around the sections when fitted seems like an idea as well
Why did you cut it in the first place and not just grind off the brackets??? Seems rather drastic with your method
This would be the only option then, unless you're planning on not actually riding your project to Starbucks.
The shop would probably be interested in the pieces cut out, if matching tube size is an issue and also because the rear engine mounts are attached.
Ok, so you're going to ride it to Starbucks. I'm in. Is it a flat six blocks? Imagine the design potential if you could push it there and back.
I guess I don't understand this frame mod. Plaka, why did you cut out a section of tubing?
To get rid of the center stand and make it a short wheelbase r65 style frame.
Or to make people cringe.
Replacing welds with wood and epoxy is not only something you could easily advocate, but you’d also claim it was the superior choice while savaging anyone who disagreed.
Just like the deist position is indistinguishable from the atheist position, Plaka being a lovable curmudgeon, Plaka joking, and Plaka being an ass is hard to separate.
I thought you were a farmer...…
I bet an epoxy soaked hemp stalk would be a good contender.
Smoke the flowers not the lumber.
Isn’t this mandatory training for living in CO these days?
Are you planning to use the traditional "V" configuration for your dual engine swap? It seems to me that inverting the second engine would provide better cornering and possibly allow you to share a starter.
A seam ripper, known to every husband whose wife sews. Actually a pretty good tool for the task you describe. Just don't stab yerself.
Are you modifying the fairing?
Silver metallic Sharpies are available.
