It was TheQuaker's truck I was thinking was an A1 - my mistake. I'll have to correct my previous statement.
Just a thought, do you think a 2-4 hole bottom section with the angle, and 2-4 hole top section with a hole for lifting would work? It would cut down on the size of the package needed for shipping, cut down the material necessary for the part and be a little bit easier to store. The weight loss would be marginal, but the other advantages seem to be worth giving it a try maybe.
The size difference between your 10 ton version and the 5 ton version is almost the same difference as the 2.5 vs 5.Might be a good option for my 10 ton HubHelper
Dang it, you're as bad as Apple! As soon as I buy a product, it's replaced with a better version just a few months later! LOL.View attachment 777671
I believe this is what Mrgior31513 was talking about as a way to reduce the shipping size/cost and I think this could work. The bottom part with 4 lug nuts attached would to the work and the top ring would attach with 2 lug nuts to help maneuver the hub. When not in use these two parts would bolt together.
Would anybody be interested in this 5 ton version over the 1-piece design?

Well, maybe not completely replaced but augmented with a new option. I will still make the one piece version, but many folks are keen on reducing the shipping size/cost and I understand why. I'm not sure what size of box this 2-piece version will fit in until I make one of them, but the shipping should be a bit less.Dang it, you're as bad as Apple!
