Finely got around to starting a bending jig (GRASSHOPPER GRH1) yesterday. Quite by accident as I was at scrap yard and found some stainless bar stock, 1 1/4 " X 5/8" X 24". Enough for two jigs as I already have the angle iron. The bar has 5/16" holes every 1.2 " center to center. $2.00!
1st step in making my GRH1 was to cut out relief holes for the Mag support holes. Not a easy task, at first I thought I had a carbon bar! Used a punch to scar the metal and the drill bit began to work. Used a 5/8ths bit, three holes side by side. Then a little cutting with a worn down grinder disk and that was done! 20 minutes about, had to look for my punch.
When I purchased the bar stock, didn't have a tape measure, only a pocket rule. I had guessed the bar to be 24" Turns out to be 29" which is better. The holes in the bar, after cutting in half wouldn't let the bars line up end to end. But that's not a problem. One just sticks out a bit from the other.
Now to bolt it all together, which was easy enough as I have a nine lb. bag of various stainless socket head bolts I'd picked up at the scrap yard a while back for $6.
Glory be, got my jig ready, flat bolted down, would go out to the shop and try it, but it's cold and wet today, so i'm just going explore 'gunco' as now I have my 10 required post to look at the pics! Kind of like turning sixteen and being allowed into the back racks at the old news stand!
This seems like a project that is within my skill level (and budget).
I have some 1 1/2 angel, I think I will try to build this.
I will have to order some 1 1/4x1/4 flat bar.
