Thank you sir, it's been an interesting project. I still need to line up the magic pixies in the right order so with any luck that goes without any magic smoke
Sorry David for cutting into your project and sorry I never noticed the question till now.David will please excuse my off topic question in his thread.
@f350ca , Regarding the use of the shaper to make your racks; can you describe the sequence of operations to create each tooth form?
Did you finish a single tooth form/root (feed table up?) then traverse the pitch dim to create the next tooth form/root?
Or, did you set the traverse auto feed to equal the pitch dim so you could work many teeth before re-indexing the stock on the table?
Or, what ???
Love your work.
Dave, looking good.
I would make the rectangular Al piece the same width as the bracket that you will be attaching it to and at least 1/2" taller than the ring. That would give you sufficient room for two holes to bolt it to the bracket. Also I would add a threaded hole into the ring to put a threaded knob as a locking bolt in to ensure the torch is held firmly.
Here are some examples:
