SELF INTRODUCTION: Hello everyone. first of all a big thanks to "Dan the Man". Some of you know me from the previous (2) boards and some don't, so here goes. I have been a fabricator/welder for over 40 years now. Damn that's a helluva long time to do anything! Anyways, I have built literaly 100's of street rods, pro streeters, racecars, bikes and trikes over the years. Never made the headlines and never will. I do what I do because it is the love of my life.
I enjoy reading the posts on the forum and try to contribute when I can. I am sure that this will be every bit as good as the CBH forum, as we will have most of the same folks. Good luck and post a lot of pics!! Jim

"A few drawings" If interested

Post by jimmib » Sat Nov 05, 2011 2:02 pm

I have quite a few drawings that I have done over the years and will post them as I have time and energy.
Anyone is welcome to these files and do what you wish with them. Just don't try and flog them on Egay!

This first PDF may help some that don"t understand trail and raked trees. The drawing on left shows stock trees and the one on right shows 3 degree raked trees. The main thing to look at is the reduction of trail with raked trees. The height and fork length dims are ficticious.

This next 2 PDF's are for you people that really want to say they did something. If you have the right equipment maybe so, but others should just buy one from JD2. They work with the JD2 model 3 bender. These were drawn up for for steel, but use your imagination :think:

SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

Best, Bob Davidson

Here is another that I thought might interest someone. Oil Tank Plumbing.
BTW, most of my drawings have my company logo on them. I am not doing this for advertising. I haven't done any of this shit for several years and don't plan to (except for myself). Just trying to pass on a little info here and there.
So this is not spam!

SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.
