|One of the problems you run into when doing something for the first time is that you are unsure of which direction to go. I made a jig so my three bents would be the same. That went well enough. Now .. I come to the bit where I go .. “What next?”
I made a ‘quick and dirty’ jig to align the footings of the bents .. and have put the tension rods in place and cemented them to the two end bents .. leaving the wires loose in the center bent. I think next I will create and glue the horizontal saddles on top of the bents and then the longitudinal saddles/blocking along the side of the tank. That will allow me to position and lock the bents vertically in position and then I can cement the tension rods to the center bent. That’s the plan anyhoo.
