Fabricated F-785B

This evening I spent a little time fabricating this bracket. It came out quite nicely including the 87.5 degree angle after squeezing it in the vise.

Then I spent about an hour looking for this F-767 bracket. I'll be darned if I know where it went.

Update: Apparently I'm supposed to make this thing from scratch. Yes, I know it says "make" right on the plans, but the thing that threw me for a loop is that there are hardly any dimensions on this drawing. When Van's does that, it normally means that they've cut the thing to size and prepunched the holes for you already.
