Hey PG_Zac, just bought a 460 and am looking to make your rig. I have been spending some time understanding it all. You make one point that I can give a recommendation on now. You say:

7. I haven’t figured the best / easiest way to make the clamp ramps, but my first idea is to cut away three sides of the square section, leaving a portion of the side that is facing the log. Bend that piece into a smooth ramp, and the problem should be solved. That may not be strong enough to last, so maybe I need to rivet a section of flat bar onto the square tube in a shape similar to what is shown in the model.

If i am looking at the correct stuff, you are referring to the little triangular ramps that in your earlier version simply ended with open square tube. If this is correct, why not just stick in a triangular (ramp shaped) chunk of maple or oak and throughbolt it from top to bottom, prevents you from having to mickey mouse the bend.

Just a thought. And I hope you don’t mind me asking some questions on this rig.
