Re: Steering box brace
Rich, when I made that clamp, I machined the perimeter of the pieces first, and then did the drilling and tapping. Then I bolted the pieces together with a 0.010" shim between, and put the assembly on the milling machine to bore the hole. But I could have just as easily made a square or rectangular hole with an end mill.
If you can't find a ready made brace, send me the dimensions of the hole you want and I'll make a clamp for you. You can make the other end and cross bar and weld it all together, right?
