|Today we welded together
the web and frame halves for stations 0, 1, 2, 3, &
4. We lifted each up and plumbed them to be sure they
were centered and even left to right, then welded them to
the headstock angle pieces. Then put in some bracing from
the web to the headstock, and smaller braces out to just
below the radius join. Suprisingly they were all pretty
close to plumb center right off.
|It was then
while lifting station 4 into place that we noticed that
our tent wouldn't be high enough for stations 5, 6 ,7
& 8! A miscalculation on my part, forgetting to add
in the height of the strong back! We'll have to raise it
some before putting up the frames.
8 hours - Completed frames 0, 1, 2, 3, & 4 ready to go up.
