Tow Dolly: Top Deck Framing


Click to Enlarge

 Measure and cut the top deck members and pivot support as per the details below.

The pivot support tube hole for mounting the pivot bush, requires a relative amount of accuracy to ensure a snug fit for the bush as well as being square to the upper surface of the pivot support.

Use a 60mm (2 3/8") bi-metal holesaw suitable for cutting steel. Pre drill a small centre hole on both sides of the pivot support and clamp the RHS to the drill press bed.

Use a slow cutting speed and plenty of cutting fluid to keep the holesaw cool and lubricated.
