My guess is that it is an Elephant Circumcision contraption. Just remember that the pay is lousy, but the tips are huge.

OK. Time’s up!

Here ya go. My wife asked if I would make her a rack to store her weights on. She found one on the inet made of metal but she likes the one I made. We started this project last night and finished this afternoon…and that included her staining the piece of maple and me spraying it with Deft Satin finish.

So, I came up with this jig so I could quickly cut ten U-bolts in half without boogering up the finish. The sample pic has the nuts on the U-bolt, but those were removed prior to cutting.

All I did was place a U-bolt in the grooves and clamp it in my vise. Then I cut it with a reciprocating saw. It was actually much easier than I had expected.

The rear side of the board has recesses bored with a Forstner bit so the washer and nut will sit below the surface. After the bolts were attached, I used a fender washer as a protector so I could cut off the extra threads on each bolt with the reciprocating saw.

Thanks for playing along. Maybe this will inspire you on a project you might be working on.

Pretty cool. I was thinking it was some kind of sled sled.

Not a problem. It’s a jig, if it helps you, wayy cool. If not, regroup, rethink, reattack the problem.

BTW, I always lock my ubolts in the machinists vice and cut them with an angle grinder with a cutting wheel or a Dremel tool.
