Don't worry about the naysayers Bill. Do what you want. Cut it, tack it and if it doesn't turn out right, cut it apart and rebuild it. Like an old foreman of mine said years ago "it's not a...

IMO, your lower mounting bolts are too long which is going to increase the "bend factor" on the lower mounts. The closer your bottom heim joint is to the lower mount, the less torque you will have...

Another thing you can do is buy a long 1/2" x 12" grade 8 bolt, cut the head off and thread that end. You can buy a 1/2" x 12" grade 8 bolt at the boltdepot for $8.40, but their bulk prices are...

Just a thought, but threaded rod is expensive and with a die set, you could buy some shafting (4140), cut them to length and thread the ends. More labor intensive, but would save a LOT of money....

Brambles, I have a Hypertherm Powermax 30 plasma cutter. It's an awesome little cutter!! Never weighed it but it's pretty light. Probably around 90 pounds by the feel of it.
