  • From Ward Holloway <> - - The new supports can be cut from a square tube or channel. Two bolts per support may not be enough, I haven't run the load calculations yet. We can size everything once we have a design nailed down.
  • Double design - allows same cylinder length - Bhdouble.jpg
  • Bottom of boom cylinder critique - not lifetime design due to bottom-facing cylinder
