Here are hopefully better pictures of the horizontal and verticals of the masthead. Please note the width between the 5/16 slits and the overall width of the horizontal pieces have yet to be finalized, both the pulley and hook are approx. 1 1/4 in width, would like an 1/8" between pulley and the vertical pieces, while not making it hard to hook the winch line to the lower mount and the radius slits might change a little as I am going to calculate the lowest possible angle of the booms themselves today.

Also going to attach the Warn winch mounting dims for the winch.

​Also Still needing 4 d-rings...anybody have some cheap? Thanks in Advance!

So I felt a little guilty about messing up the posting . I finished up the design work on welding web forum. I thought I was waiting for final revise on the drawing but I noticed it was fixed when I looked for the drawings. I will start looking for a water jetter first or lazer cutter second to cut this out! Starting locally (more expensive...everything is more expensive in Lost Angels :() but no shipping cost (plus I can film the process for another youtube video!), then further out .Both_Brackets_01_Mix-2k.png

I had been watching over on WW but hadn't seen you on recently. Glad to hear you're moving forward on this!

Me to GimpyRobb!
Yeah the guy helping me with the cad drawings was transitioning from employee to self employed and I didn't want to bother him and didn't realize he had finished the drawings. That said I got one quote back and I think its high. they have a minimum, which would be 8 pieces (2 sets) and the quote was 300.00 does that sound right to you guys?

EDIT: This price is with me supplying the steel.
