I started assembling the frame yesterday and I’m making progress slowly. Like I said before, the stuff is hard to work with. Until the whole thing is together, it really wants to shift and move around a lot. I don’t want to lock down any of the bolts for the brackets until it’s all the way together and square. A few times I forgot to put brackets in channels that were going to be blocked by other pieces of frame so I had to remove pieces, add the brackets and reinstall them. I’m in love with this frame stuff, it’s like a huge erector set.
I hope to get the frame fully assembled this weekend. I need to stop off after work tomorrow and pick up some cutting oil, I can’t find mine and I need it to drill the holes in and for the v-rails.
