Back at it this evening finally, other stuff to be done around the house and errands.
I did a little sanding on the interior pieces and glued up the frame and added a few nails with the nail gun. Then added the support blocks in the corners, screws only. I also set the post, which took a bit of work to get it plumb and having the bar parallel to the turn table. Done.
I also took the time to trim the bar to length and set it up. Then attached the large circular protractor, hanging a plumb bob from the end of the bar. I will admit it is off a tad bit 1/32nd.
Attached the 4 legs (lost a small bolt, frisky little buggers) Screwed the press plate which goes on top and inserted the clamping jig.
There is also a plate with a scribe line to to set the angle. I think I need to take this off and paint a black ring around the perimeter.
After doing some tweaking tomorrow I think this will work for my intended purpose. I managed to meet all of the parameters that I was shooting for. I will try to get a project posting in the next few days.
Thanks for reading and following along on this build, comments are always welcome and appreciated.
