Post Building a rearend narrowing alignment jig.

Got any ideas on how a jig could be built for a one time job? Something to hold the tubes in place and the ends in place (nice n square) while I weld them?

I don't know if this would apply to your project, but I have used the angle in a heavy piece of angle iron to weld tubes together. iron should be fairly long and tubes clamped into position. Bud

I saw a jig for sale today for $200. It was for 9 inch and 12 bolt. I can't remember if it was at mortec or nitronic but if you don't have that kind of money maybe you could get them to send you some pictures??? Good luck,

Just for feedback: I used 30 desoto's idea and actually cradled the tubes in three pieces of 1x1 angle. I cut the tubes with a big pipe cutter and got good square ends, tacked them in place using the angle iron as guides and welded with the stick welder. Save a lot of money compared to shipping it out and having it done for $$$. Thanks for the help.
