My Warrior Trike jig

AZ Krew Guru

I modified the jig I made for my first bent to use it to build my Warrior trike.

Today, I added to it for the steering tubes. At first I built it to hold the front wheels in the proper place, but couldn't clamp the tires tightly enough to secure them. So, I adapted the jig to hold the axles in just the right place. 
This makes it pretty easy to do the cuts on the steering tube. I did the cuts on one boom, ground it down to fit and tack welded it in place in about 40 minutes.
