I appreciate that the stock Taig motor mount works, and is inexpensive, but I decided to try out an idea I've had kicking around in my head for a while. I modified the stock motor mount with a few extra pieces. Total time was about 10 minutes, give or take...ok, maybe more like 20.
|The parts: Stock taig mounting plate, 1/2" steel shaft with two #10-32 tapped holes to mount to the mounting plate, angle brackets made from 1/4" aluminum angle, drilled 1/2" and slotted. misc hardware.|
|In place. The mounting holes are inline with the predrilled mounting holes (notice the thin pencil line that picked them up). Slots mean you don't have to be precise.|
|Side view. Works like a charm and is much more rigid.|
