Cheers
There is no coolant system on it but was gonna use an oil can to help keep it lubed.

I use one of these hand held manual, gravity fed, multi machine, universal coolant pumps.

So while posting the above post the other night the baby stated crying so i didnt get around to finishing it

Any how i didn't just do i cut and leave it
I cut all the bottom rails and the uprights and started tacking them together the only one being the problem was the 78 degree angle but after a bit of grinding it was grand
