Progress has been made on the jig, but nothing too exciting. A basic structure for the jig has been made using 3" steel channel which is similar to a design I have previously used for manufacturing bicycle frames. This varies slightly, as its been designed to be "future-proof" (well, hopefully). The steel channel is merely the basic structure, featuring an adjustable bracket for the headstock mount, adjusting in height and angle. Onto this structure, aluminum plates can be fixed into position which will be machined with all the relevant engine mounts in place. When the time comes to design and build a frame for future projects, only the aluminum plates need to be made, not the whole jig.
