Anyone got a jig they are trying to get rid of?
I need another jig, if anyone is looking to get rid of a jig please let me know.
Preferably a Bringheli or HJ, but not too important as long as it has fixturing for the rear triangle.
I thought you decided to get an Anvil? There is still one for sale on Frameforum, I believe.
While you are waiting to get one... I made a seriously accurate jig using a mill table. I just asked around from friends, and advertised WTB on craigslist. There is a hundred times more stuff like that in the Bay than where I live. The rear axle is all milled from 1" bar (Anvil is only 3/4", ) and suspends in these milled sprocket flanges, in a t-tube that slides back and forth in the table track. The BB is held in a v-block that has a bolt going though the BB, through the v-block, into a t-nut in the mill track. When that is screwed down you could hit it with a sledge and it wouldn't move.
I have it all torn apart and am making a more adjustable rear end that uses a newly acquired short mill table off a small tabletop horizontal mill.
To use it as a rear end jig:
I am trying to get Anvil functionality on the front end also, and that is taking me a long time to play with. It will never be an Anvil because it is too heavy to position. But it does make a decent rear end jig. And you can always sell a mill table set up as a welding table.
I can't afford a new Anvil at the moment, as much as I want one. How much is the one on FF going for (I am not a club member)?
So far I haven't seen an Anvil for sale for less than what it cost to buy the basic jig retail.
Dude, I know of a sweet jig for sale, for less than a new Bringheli! It's a single frame sized Morroni, one of only 4 made. I have a tandem sized version you can see on my blog (go back to the older one) so you can get an idea of what it looks like/how it works.
I will say this jig has better access than any of the others and you can get the whole thing for less than the cost of the machine work it would take to make it yourself.
pm me and I'll hook you up with the seller.
Is that the one Dave Porter is selling?
