Looks great....... even though it's made of metal , you still might consider some locating pins so it won't twist out of shape after repeated use.

Also, did you trial fit some pieces of Fastrack to make sure there were no clearance issues, especially on the hinge side ?

Locating pins is a hard maybe...its .125 Aluminum it will need to take a really good shot to screw it up..ya there are zero clearance issues on both sides

Morning..1st I hope this is the right forum for this..had some time at work yesterday so I twisted up parts for the lift up bridge and installed it this morning..pardon the mess 4C31BA40-410F-4839-A572-B19078C2B150

Hello,

Could you please post some additional photos showing the hinge itself? 

The video is ok, but didn't show the hinge assembly and how it was mounted.

You did a great job and it is worth noting how it was done.

All .125 5052 H32 Aluminum The hinges are 2 flats and 2 angles .. the whole shelf rests on 2 angles screwed to the table ..I used hardware from the "Big Bucket" in the Garage Mahal so cost for bridge has been zero I assembled it all with it in place starting with the angle rests then the table and hinges I spaced it and clamped the hinge stuff in and drilled and tapped 1/4-20 for plates to the bridge and then I screwed the hinge angles on if you look the piviot point is up and away towards the outter upper corner ..thats so it lifts as it swings and zero bind ..I didnt use pins and probably wont as its 24" square and has zero play in left or right direction Id need to literally have to damage on purpose to get it to not line up.. When I Drilled the Hinge I did for 1/4-2 and tapped all the way thru..it will work like that but I drilled out the bridge side of the hinge just so the bolt would go thru and used Nylock nuts on all ..I could have punched out everything and made it "Perfect" like it was manufactured but I just twisted up the Bridge and the hinge angles and the shelf angles ..everything else was flat

Allegheny,Thank you ..I hope the above pics help but Im more than willing to answer any questions you might still have  Dave

Snkbittin, that is one nice bridge! Beefy! You must have a brake to do such perfect bends. With 1/8th" thick aluminum and the fact that it's maybe two feet wide, you could stand on it. It will last a long time and no splinters! Please post again when you connect the Fastrack electrically, I'd like to see how you do it. Thx for the post.

Thanks! Yes Im a Fabricator..I program and run a 10' Mitsubishi Hybrid Brake ..Its very sturdy! Ive been laying out the track and hope Ill get the track on it tomorrow
