  • Steel Trestle Tower Bent

    At least I think that's the proper name

    Two of them will make up the tower to support the joining point of the two Howard trusses, total span 3+ feet.

    Height of the bent is a good foot:

    Cool! Looks like we're both deep into bridge building right now. I'll be following this with interest.

      WOW Leo, that is some serious steel there for the bridge, It's going to be quite the impressive structure when completed.

        It's 5/16" I beam Ron, my LHS ran out of 1/4" which I wanted to try as well.

        I'll post a picture of where it's going to stand tomorrow, I like it to be as 'see-throughable' as possible so 1/4" is still an option


        cheers, Leo

          the template is a good idea, Ive heard rumur that they tend to end up crooked otherwise.
