A bridgeport is very expensive. The one I have access to is from the 70's probably, but it works like a brand new one. I am sure they are in the 5k plus range and up.

I have access to cnc machinery but I don't have the time to create the CAD drawings. It would be really easy then to cut out that section.

I will try to take pictures as I do some of the rest of the steps. It's hard to take pictures of you doing something when there is no one to take the picture. I usually do this at 11 pm after the wife and baby have gone to bed.

Jon,

I understand.

Just do what you can so the rest of us can benefit. You probably will only build a stabibizer once.

I will probably build two, considering I will find somethings I would like to improve and that will be version 2 :) I also need two of them :)

Ok... It's been a while but here are some pictures of the sled before it was taken for welding. Cost $60

Didn't really take the time to resize photos too much. One picture is the pole and bottom of sled, the other is pole and top of sled and third picture are the three sides to the gimble-arm holder for lack of a better word... it's late :)

I should have a bunch of new updates this next week. I have some free time.. It's going to be fun.

Ok. I just got back the pieces that needed welding. I will post pictures of the assembled sled sometime soon.
