Did this video help you?

1ARTHURJR: Geeze man,, get something done !  12 1/2  minutes of talk and no go........ still nothing done !  BORING !

Bak Draft: to complicated

Nathan .Harper: really liked the video, great idea, if you go to gough custom's sight he made something of the same sort, but maybe a little easier to build :)

Adam Savage: Thanks 6S, Never thought of that before. Would probably use a 3.5mm so you get the "tramline" rather than a dead central line :)

6Ssurvival: Hey to score the line use a 4mm drill peace

Adam Savage: lol, no worries buddy. You can use a caliber to scribe the lines. Anything made of hardened steel with a sharp edge will do the job. Just make sure you leave about a 1mm gap between the lines in the centre, so when it's hardened you can grind the bevels down to their final edge. This gets rid of the surface where the carbon has burnt off, getting down to the hard steel again. :)

trackerbuckmann1111: typo city.. sorry. late and i am tired.

trackerbuckmann1111: you can also use a dial caliper to scribe the edge. you just set on side of the top if the blank and use the other side to scribe a stright line down the side as you drag it along.

Adam Savage: You're absolutely correct. At the time this video was made I didn't have an inclinometer, so thought I'd use the roofers square. Thanks for the advice though mate.

shazdee: You could achieve the same result in a much simpler way with a device called an inclinometer. Where you're measuring angles and cutting out bits of cardboard, with an inclinometer you simply sit the magnetic side on top of your file and adjust your jig until you get the desired angle reading. I got mine for about $9 AUS. About 6 GBP. They are sold in most hardware or tool shops. Assuming your blade stock is level you will get perfect repeatable angles every time with 30sec of setup time.

Adam Savage: No worries buddy. Glad it was of some use

EpicWeaponries: LOL thanks mait i needed to know how to roughly make one

EpicWeaponries: thats maittay

Adam Savage: I have spent quite a bit of time around Somerset and Dorset, but Northants myself lol. Thanks mate

CallusDnb: Somerset bey? lol, Excellent video mate, thanks a lot.

Adam Savage: My apologies. I understand what you mean. Sounds like a good idea :) Many thanks for the kind comment Adam

bruce halleran: I saw the "Polaris Slingshot Trailer" tag and thought Oh boy!  If somebody is already making a custom trailer then there must be a hitch ready too.  Then the video loads and it's just a wagon for those who's toy budget extends to dragging a Slingshot around behind their cage.  Now if you were to apply your evidently excellent trailer engineering chops to a Slingshot HITCH...
kevin burch: piece of crap Suzuki struggles... never would have guessed
w abdelhalim: Masha'ALLAH VERY nice ya Youssef and, it's also very nice to see you, really missed you :) Mai
M Barron: Great video! Thanks guys. Is the Rupes designed to be better and more effective than a rotary or simply an alternative? It seems awesome.
