To help make up for some missed #forgingfridays I can share some of my jig setups. This job called for a buttress with slit and drifted joints and plug welded assembly that will be detailed out. Having to take into consideration that the mount, the posts it mounts to, the buttress its self, the mount at the top which you can see the level on it; all of this needs to be parallel and square to itself. I had four to do and was enough to set up a system where everything dropped in and clamped up. #gettinJiggyWitIt #DirtySmith #blacksmith #blacksmithing
