23-Sept-2013 In a rush to get the brackets ready and mount the air tanks on the engine before taking it out in public view, Bill takes the brackets home to drill and tap the tie down straps. The keystock I used had hardened from the heat of the TIG welder and it takes five drill bits and three taps, even after re-heating them to cherry to complete the operation. We have to machine away part of one bracket with the broken tap and weld a new piece on. We have spent over 18 man-hours on these brackets, much to my amazement.
