I wasn’t intending to blog my Chevy project again, but the truth is, I’m kind of excited today and I wanted to brag a little because I got my saw frame mounted finally, and since all the rest of the Chevy is made to hold that saw frame, I am now beginning to feel that I have actually accomplished something! Apologies for the bad mobil phone photos with the distorted saw frame support assembly in the first photo. Don’t worry though, they aren’t leaning backwards!
It’s know it still looks pretty rough. The saw frame hangers are just roughed out and like the rest of the project need chamfering, sanding, finishing. Before that, there are still a few details that need to be done. These include the height adjustment wedges for the big arm that holds the saw frame assembly, the adjustable saw frame rest, wheels on the jaw clamp assembly, the saw jaws that attach to the foot actuated clamp plus a few cosmetic details.
More important than the looks is that the saw frame slides very smoothly back and forth as it is supposed to do. There is still a ways to go before I can do the keyhole cutting test to see how it is lined up, but so far so good.
The Chevalet’s Godfather (we all know who that is don’t we?) will soon be Christening this latest addition to the family.
