Yan inspired me to get moving on my own swingarm/frame jig.
I'm combining the two on a 10x5 'I' beam. The component parts will bolt on and be doweled to prevent movement and accurate location.
So first up, i've started the swingarm pivot mount. This will double up as the frame pivot when i come to constructing my first frame.
Basically, turned to sleeves with 20mm bored holes. A nice snug fit on a 20mm stainless round bar.
The sleeves are then welded into two box sections, and these in turn are welded onto an angle plate with the bar set up through the sleeves to get it all true.
This assembly is then being bolted to the 'I' beam as mentioned.
To hold the pivot sleeve of the swinger, i found two large screws, chopped off the head and turned an index on the ends and bored through at 20mm again. These then slide onto the stainless bar and the nuts will sit against the inside of the sleeves so when they're wound up, force the screw into the pivot to hold it into the relative position it needs to be, i'll either use collars for the ends of the pivots or tapers like Yan did on his.
Next up i have reciprocate this assembly again in a similar fashion for the axle end of the arm. As this can all be moved on the beam means i can use it to hold the frame pivot when i need it for that purpose...i'll just need to make the headstock jig to complete the job.
Pics then...







Only the one screw fitted at the moment, and whatever spacers are need can just be slid on when required.

Hot Stick Aloo.

Part two...Turned up the second adjuster sleeve then drilled the assembly and 'I' beam so they bolt together halfway along it.





A check with the inclinometer to check alignment...





Just got to align the pivot bar perpendicular to the beam, then parallel to the axle mount, which is being constructed next.

Part three of the jig is done.
I finished making a matching cross bar frame to go through the axle end of the arm.
Also turned up a pair of collars to fit in the ends of the pivot bearings...allthough this arm was dropped by the postman, which deformed the end of the pivot, squashing the end of the bearing. So i've had to knock the now useless bearing out, dress the hole and turn a collar that fits directly in the pivot. Then replace the bearing.





I'll do the same setup for the axle end, with a spacer between the ends of the arms in the axle blocks, these will lock with the outer sleeves screwed against the brace bar support.
It's all going to be bolted down to the 'I' beam and won't be moving when i weld the brace on....lovely.
Just a headstock mount and i'm on my way to getting a frame jig out of it.

Default Re: some home made shit

Thought I would throw this out there for anyone rebuilding forks but doesnt wanna pay the 75 some dollars for a fork seal driver.
cost less than 5 dollars.
2 feet of 2 inch pvc pipe, cut into strips about halfway down so it can be clamped around the fork, old fork seal to use as a buffer between pipe an new seal to prevent damage of new seal. do not currently have pics of it in use as I did this weeks ago, but I will see if I can get any if someone wants to do this but is unclear.
