17-May-2011 Step one of machining the cab floor brackets - mill them square. Both pieces have been saw cut from the plate and are clamped in the vise. Using a shell cutter with the pieces sticking so far up out of the vise makes for a noisy, chattery operation, but it worked. It's time like these I wish I had a shear (and since I'm wishing, that could cut 1/8" steel plate). It would make quick work of this piece instead of needing to machine all four sides.
