The long lessons! Funny how teaching how to level out the Bluco tables is a fundamental task it’s not as easy as one would think.

There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes. I am updating the fixtures at the same time jumping from laptop, and super computer In the house. And adding it all to bend-tech at the same time........a father never rests! Can’t wait till he starts SW classes in college! ;)

Slowly! No laser jigs, but the Bluco tables are spot on! It’s so nice to easily get square and level.
We are still a budget build, hoping to be a roller by end of year.

Would like to do a shout out to Brenthel, thank you so much for responding and answering questions. Trying to stay true to the generations build. It will be a bit old school but close to the chassis specs of the original Mills truck.

Looks good. You are going to have to step up your game with The Thing. You can't have your kid faster than you :)

Vertical gets the weight out farther making it more stable. It can also have a lower CG than flat mounted on the top of the cell. Even if they are angled. Also way easier to lift in and out.
