Those $%#! motor mounts….

As usual, I just can’t seem to do things right the first time. If you remember my last post about my version 2 motor mounts, you would know how much I hate them… Well with a few days of vacation from thanksgiving, there is no reason why these shouldn’t be fixed!

The plan was to use these joist mounts and form into supports for hockey puck mounts:

But folding in the sides made a mess, and I really don’t want to deal with these wimpy 0.065″ stampings. Instead these became mock-ups, and I fabricated the actual mounts with the 1-1/4 x 1/8 mild steel on hand:

A few more passes with the magic wand:

Cutting off and grinding away the old mounts was a pain in the butt. After some struggling, The new ones made their way in. Much more stiff and better looking. For some reason my tig welds looks terrible, more reasons to paint these.

3 days of hard work!
