1/4-20

Today I took a bit of time and tapped the 8 holes that hold the pedestals to the pedestal spacers.  Then I screwed together that part of the assembly.  This is the first time I get to see the pedestals in their actual position relative to the side frame.  It is quite deep under there, not quite sure I did good with the rivet placement on the side frames that simulate pedestal mountings.

I also took the time to grind and file the hole in the second frame end for the coupler pocket.  Lots of time and just when I was about to stop for the day the coupler pocket slipped in.  Now I just need to make the second coupler pocket.
