    Got 2 of the 4 axles made for 1 track system. Collars fit. Building a prototype version of the motor mount and bearing holder first so I can make sure all my measurements are right and everything fits. Start cutting up some steel on weekend.

    Made the other 2 axles for the prototype version of the motor mount/tensioner framing.

    Notched both ends of this tube to make 2 parts out of it for connecting the front axle bearing holder to the motor mount.

    Started on making the prototype version of the motor mount.

    Got the Drawing done for the Idle wheel jig. Drawing up the jig for the drive wheels now. Oh and these are going to be used as building / tack welding jigs to get every thing straight and all the same length. Will be laser cut and then slotted together and welded.
