Double check the bolt holes.
I used to run a big plasma table, making bolt-ready holes was the "grail" thing that Hypertherm and whoever else were advertising that their newest shiniest stuff could mostly do. The beveled kerf that the plasma jet makes can cause some issues with fitment and longevity.
Not a huge deal, worst case scenario you just clean up the holes with a drill, but figured it might be worth mentioning so you don't get caught off guard.

I knew going in that the periphery and holes would be shitty - I'm not a fan of plasma cutting. That said, it was cheaper and faster than my usual waterjet source and for the application, it was good enough. All the holes and slots accept the bolts, thankfully. I wasn't looking forward to buying a tapered reamer to clean them up because I definitely wasn't going to use my good drills on the shitty hardened edges.

I'm going to deburr the parts and dress the edges a little, then blast and paint.

De-slagged the plasma parts and cleaned the edges up on the sander. Deburred them and ran them through the glass bead cabinet to get most of the rust and scale off. Shot them with etch primer and satin black. No pics, too busy.

Picked up a bunch of hardware and some paint today, got a test fit of the bracket for the sliding rear post, put on some stickers but messed one up







That one will be welded around the "T", upper bolts just there to hold alignment for welding, will sit more like this

Like so





With the paint ground off I got to welding



And painted





Was running out of daylight so we skip to after I welded the other bigger pieces together, more paint



Also removed the trunnions so I can clean them up and pack with fresh grease. This fixture sat outside in the weather for a while and they're a little gummed up. I happen to have some clean leftover sae hardware that fits, so can replace all the rusty bolts. Got the larger truss section mostly prepped for paint too.





Not enough red left for the base... thinkin maybe silver

Damn nice. I have a long time friend who builds old skool choppers, once he started making frames, demand for them took all his time, had to start turning them down to make time for anything else.
Fancy trunnions and stout frame, was this for rolling or storing material in a former life? I looked at a frame a friend offered me that used to be used in a carpet warehouse for a possible car rotisserie, it was too big to get back to my shop without hiring a rollback. Passed on it and still regretting it.

Thanks. I'm really looking forward to playing with it. It was a decommissioned assembly fixture, it supported a separate aluminum assembly fixture/drill jig. Got lucky with getting it but still paying the price for moving it by myself.
