Brush Guard Pattern
« on: August 13, 2022, 08:21:29 AM »
Hi All.
I've just been reading an old post on line that suggests that there is a 2a Brush Guard Pattern available on this sight.
Has anyone seen it or knows how to find it?
Thanks in advance.

Go to remlr.com in the top right corner of this page and search the links.

I am fairly sure that I found the drawing there years ago, as I made a couple of brush-bars afterwards,

Thanks for the reply Chazza.
I'll take a look and see what I can find.
That tab is so easy to overlook unless you've been shown.
You do learn something new everyday.
Thanks once again.

Hmmm.

Had time today to look for the brush bar drawing on REMLR but couldn't find it either. However, I had a look through my own files and found a pdf drawn by myself and most probably copied from the original, because it describes unobtainable steel sizes, such as, 48 x 10mm ( 1 7/8" x 3/8").

If you use metric steel, such as 50 x 10 flat, it looks a bit too chunky but I suppose it is better than nothing. One thing I remember, is that the fillet welds naturally enough shrink the flat bar. If you don't have a good clamping-jig, this can be countered by laying a bead on the other side of the bar to shrink the metal the other way and then grind the bead off later.

Drawing attached,

Hi Charlie.
Thanks for the drawing.
I looked under the drawing section as well as through people's shed builds in case they may have had it there.
I think the 50 x 10 mm will do the job just fine. I'm sure you would be hard pressed to notice 2mm from close up let alone from a distance.
The drawing is very good quality and much better than say the drawing of where the tool holders are placed on the guards found in the drawing list.
Also, just wondering if the R45 ( radius ) on the top section at each end of the bar is too small? It seems like it, but I have never seen one up close to know if it is right.
Once again thanks Charlie for your help. It is very much appreciated.

I will go and measure the ones I made and check the radius for you.

Checked the ones I made and r45 is correct; that being the inside-radius.

Thanks Charlie.
It just seemed too small.
I have my drawing. I have my cut list, just get the material and into it.
Thanks again for your help Charlie.
