Station 3

Back to Station 3! There are two doublers on the transverse wire fitting. I cut them out of .10 sheet steel and ground them into shape.



Then they were brazed together and drilled to accept the turnbuckle. Advice for those of you thinking of building a Jenny - bend the pieces to the 50 degree angle BEFORE brazing! Unless you like brazing the same piece twice....like I did.



Next step is to drill the holes in the ears to match the big Station 3 fitting.

Till then

Brian
