It is only fair to include the design team's statement in their defense:From: Ken & Janet Root:
I'm back from vacation, just got your email with bracket et al. I'm impressed! Should clarify a point though. It cost two beers for the welding, but we managed to up the beer consumption afterward since we were so pleased with ourselves. You've done quite a job documenting a problem that many people will run into.
Did some damage at Highland Hardware while on vacation. They are really nice people, ready to trade fine tools for dollars.
Next is a drawing of the bracket for a 56 frame - see other bases
