This is where i currently stand.
The entire carriage is complete except for the four transoms that connect the two cheeks.
I need the trunnion spread to do that.
The last trunnion contour surprised me by getting finished yesterday. I ground it out today.
The next step is cut the half pipes to final length and weld on the flange. I will tack weld the trunnion into the hole in the half collar.
I will return to San Antonio and verify that the collar fits.
I really, really hope it does. A great deal of labor and cost has gone into this thing.
The carriage as it stands in my shop now.
Also the trunnions ready to be tacked into the collar pieces after they are cut to final lenght.
