The steel was ordered and Gary (pictured below) purchased a new band saw for the shop to be used for cutting the steel. Did I mention I have the greatest boss and friend anyone could hope for? Well I do!
Today after our regular work day was completed at the shop. We stayed "after hours" and began cutting the steel for the cradle (thats me in the picture). Tomorrow we'll complete the cutting then we'll spend a few hours a night over the next few nights and get the cradle welded together.
