Here’s what the surface grinder does to a wrench.

I spent lots of time running one. I was a newb, apprentice if you will. one common job was a hand full of wrenches would be dropped off with one altered wrench. we were then to alter all the rest to the same specs as the one dropped off. I got to make the little stop signs for inside the Oldsmobile plant in Lansing,MI. Manifest holders, some work on Pontiac Fiero door skin fixtures. Fixtures was our bread n butter there. Almost all of our jobs came from Oldsmobile/GM. One fun project was tearing down old gang air wrenches to make new ones for applications on the then "new" Buick V6 engine. Time on the surface grinder and lathe was fun to me. I still wish I had an old Bridgeport in my shop ;) Always wished I had my own TIG welder after those machinist days too! I didn't last much more than a year there, this ole farm boy was yearning to be outdoors when the sun was bright and I went back to construction to get outside.

Ooooo :shock: is right. If that bottom tag is overall 2" x 1/2", that's the one. I'll do some dremel grinding on the mold and somewhat flush mount the tag and it should be perfect. I may even hinge that side of the mold so it can swing away so there's no hangups on casting removal. You're a genius Shane.

I thought Shane made it perfectly clear that he wasn't too excited about production work!

you should replace Shane's name with Rick :D Shane's work is finished :worthy: mine is just beginning, maybe today after the mail is delivered :shock:

I plan today to put these wedges to the test, jacking up the cub in harsh positions to make sure they're bullet proof. Some pics, and it's posting on the "For Sale" forum time. I have roughly 25 sets poured that will be phase 1. When I rework the mold to accept Shane's tag, those will be phase 2.

Finally got around to building one of these platform carriers. Tried to go as original looking as possible. Had to use angle and weld it together then grind it to look formed.

Shane,

Looks good, however, I'm a bit puzzled about what the final dimensions may be.
