Two major donors, ONEAL STEEL and Riggins competition, donated the material required to manufacture our jig table. It took 7 days from acquisition to completion. Work included, sanding the rust off the table, painting it with primer and then paint, purchasing new leveling bolts, moving the table numerous times (what a PITA!), picking up 500lbf 4ft by 12ft quarter in thick steel in a pickup truck with a 9 foot bed (that was interesting), using man power to unload and mount the 500lbf table top and then 9 hours of cleaning, drilling mounting holes, counter sink holes, and finally bolting down the table top. Chassis manufacturing is a GO!

Work has begun prepping our table for chassis construction. The table will be finished this weekend and fabrication will begin monday.
