* MF 702 progress

Posted on June 28th, 2015 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

On Friday I ordered what seemed like an unbelievable amount of steel to make the framework up of the transporter I purchased a while ago. The main pieces are away being shot blasted and I can’t wait for them to come back so I can start assembling the box.

It took a lot of working out as to how much steel I needed. I’ am having the supplied 6 metre lengths of steel cut into more manageable 2 metre lengths. The spread sheet on the bottom left corner of the drawing is my working out  to tells me what pieces I will get cut from the different lengths and ultimately how many pieces I needed.

I last couple of items to sort out now are the spring that holds the hook in place to stop the box tipping. I have a section of spring I now need to find a company to make it.


and some laser cut parts.
