  • Torch the hole for mounting the motor in the 8" piece of 4x4 angle. Grind off the slag.
  • Double check that the hole is large enough by putting on the motor and making sure the raised portion in the center goes all the way thru.
  • You can torch separate holes for the bolts, or do one large, odd shaped one like is pictured.
  • Torch whichever holes you couldn't access with the punch

Step #4: Weld it together

  • Weld the bottom 2x2 to the 21" 4x4.
  • Weld the two 4x4 angle pieces together as pictured, ensuring they are perfectly flush and square.
  • Skip around while welding so it doesn't warp one way or another.
  • Grind off the top weld linking the 4x4's so the bearing will be able to sit flush on it
  • Also grind off near the bolt holes on the bottom.
