I mean, you cannot just drill a hole through the box section and put a bolt through it, the tube will deform under bolt pressure and the rack will not be fixed solidly enough.

That would all depend on the wall thickness of the box section and the animal swinging on the spanners

Hi Sylvain, I have had another look at the steering rack brackets that you have had and I like the design, do you have any contact details for the guy that made them

Hi,
I supplied those parts to Sylvain.
The drawings for those parts can be downloaded from here https://www.dropbox.com/s/koet0tnodl...20moppl e.zip. Any adequately equipped engineering shop can fabricate them.
Also I could supply them, but minimum batch size would be 10 sets.

I wouldn't mind a set of those if anyone can supply.
Maybe get a group buy going?

Depending on cost I could be up for a set of them for my next build when I get my act together and get started again lol

hi,
Sorry I saw this post a bit late. Yes, Madis (mopple) supplied me this steering rack bracket, and it is top notch. If you can find more people interested in it, it is really worth it, as the price was OK too if I remember well.

By the way Madis, how is your build going?

Hi Madis, thanks for the drawing, I will see if there are any engineering companies in the area that can produce them.

Kind regards

Arfon

Hi, a little update regards my version of steering rack brackets. I made an inquiry for 3 sets to a water cutting shop. Should get an answer from them at the beginning of new week. Will post the price for a set next week.

Regards,
Madis
