Got the gussets welded on and bent up the rear end. First ski’s pretty much done for now aside from welding the relief cuts shut. Dinner time...
Yea it clears about 12" but thank you. I didnt actually measure it until you said thatI"m sure you've thought this out but the pix show the ski coming forward pretty far. Did you check tire clearance with the 3 PH all the way up?
Yes a portaband. Took a couple blades to get it right. Kept fighting me until i got it dialed in and not force it. So, the cuts are to be welded shut. I did one already and ground it smooth to see how it went, and it looks great. Im waiting to weld my structural welds on my second ski before i do the obligatory filler welds on the cuts. I gotta get some more wire. I didnt crank it up though so ill do that route on the rest to really burn it in.Soo the Relief Cuts.
You use a Portaband saw or what?
I think I saw a spare blade and a handle of a Milwaukie Unit..?
What to do when you wear through the front edge of cuts?.......ground side of Ski
I suppose if you weld the edges good it will be fine.......the "relieved area is now tight correct?
Turn up the welder and burn it in good.
Awe crap!Did you check tire clearance with the 3 PH all the way up?
Whew.Yea it clears about 12" but thank you.
Sounds like something I'd do, but then again I am a bonehead.I didnt actually measure it until you said that
Oscar,They do look great! Had a chance to put these to use yet? I look forward to seeing how well they work.
