Beginners Fab Episode 10: Making a Shock Mounting Bracket With Tabs
Off-Road Fabrication tabs and brackets aren't the most complex components to design. Nor are they the most difficult to produce. Still, there are a few things to keep in mind, so that your bracket works for your needs, and performs in the most optimal way. I talk a bit about that in this episode.
Material used for this project are the following:
-Shock (for measurements)
-Tabs (Pre-made or custom made, having the appropriate bolt hole)
-1/4" flat stock
-Cut off wheels
-Flap disk for angle grinder
-Marker for drawing on metal stock
-Shock bolt, nut and flat washers.
