ALUMINUM FRAME CONSTRUCTION

Recommended Posts

During our tour of the Oliver Factory, one work station in particular just absolutely captured my total attention.

Lead man LALO had a frame in the framing jig that he was putting the finishing touches on. I was mesermized by the quality of the fitting and the welds ! Butcherknife finaly had to nudge me to get me to move on with the tour. The gusets fit so well and the assembly as a whole was obviously so strong. I am sure that I was getting in the way of the leadman's work effort, but he took time to explain to me each time I asked a question. Here is a photo of the tongue section. Note, I have left the photo large on pourpose to be better able to view the fit and welding, particularly where the extensible tongue fits in. Please note also that this is a frame that is still under construction and some of the welds are so fresh that they havn't been buffed out yet.
