So here is the frame I made for Shortbus before plating. He wants a backpackable high production OR sample highbanker. He cut his Le Trap down to 3' and I am suppling the G2 top hopper with a couple different grizzly bar setups.

The new frame design (all square cuts on the steel!)

Here is a frame I made for my Mini Long Tom AKA Predator III:

The sharp eye will also notice I changed the leg mount design also. I used to have two thumb screws, but found just one at a 45 degree angle was much better for holding the legs and less material and lighter... win/win/win and once you drill the hole I just drop the bolt through the nut to the back corner of the mount to keep it in alignment to weld.
Older plated frame I made:

So for the time being I will keep making frames, but I doubt I will do that indefinitely though.

All of them are visible to me, thanks for sharing  <-good_>

I also noticed what you did to the Zinc plated frame. Nice update  {-applause-}

Well, why you don't throw me a couple of em along  <-laugh-> they will be very useful for my Sluices I build and can't find any stand around locally.  DEVIL&??
