I had my ring turned down like Ballistic's, ~10" OD. Once the patch piece is notched, it'll sit far enough into the housing for maximum clearance. I coulda gained more overall clearance by having my bottom piece thinner, like 1/4" or 1/8", but I wanted to keep it 3/8" at its thinnest spot.

I can also re-use el cheapo grill to heat my knuckles for welding. AND I can use el cheapo grill to make burgers and dogs
Keep an eye out for those "buy some amount of stuff and get this crappy grill for free" sales at hardware stores or whatever. My mom got one that way.

Re: Ross's Box and Sticker Collection

Oh baby, oh baby, oh.

I said I'd have the 14b ready to weld by the weekend and I think Im going to meet that deadline!!! I figured out how to make the bridgeport angle to the sides and was able to make the patch piece. It fits perfectly!!! Leaves just about an 1/8" clearance between the ring gear/carrier and the patch all around it. I was able to keep the minimum thickness to 3/8" right in the middle.

Re: Ross's Box and Sticker Collection

Why bother shaving this POS, I mean, do you *really* think your 10" ring gear is going to hold up?
