3m makes safety glasses with a foam gasket that snugs against you cheeks. Our work made us wear them and they were a horrible sweat fogged hazard but they work awesome when cutting or grinding. Even makes cutting wood outside in the wind tolerable. I don't grab a grinder or lay under a truck looking for pixie dust without them anymore.

Thanks Brian. I procured some similar fog catchers recently:

(Temporary) Shock mounts coming together.

Drilled through both walls of the tube first with 13/64”, then opened up to 1/4”. Installed a 1/4” transfer punch as the holesaw pilot to reduce wandering.


Machined some slugs from 1.0x0.250” wall 4130 tube. Brent used the lathe to make one of those while I was in the house tending to the baby—Nicely done.


Nice rusty allthread to hold alignment during welding:





Not sure how I am going to double shear the mounts yet, but I have a couple options that will look reasonably clean and be easily removed when links happen.

Shoulda machined a step into the bung so the top caps eyelet slid onto it, thus eliminating one misalignment spacer and also removing the bolt from shear.
Looks good, i like the floating backhalf for future linked awesomeness lol

Thanks Kevin!

Machining a step into the bung would have been tidy! It only works for single shear, though.

I can always weld the inboard misalignment spacer to the bung with similar results if I decide to leave the shock mounts single shear.

With regards to the “Floating Backhalf”—the more I look at it, the more I love the idea! It is going to drastically reduce the work required to link the truck someday, whilst retaining usability during the parts collection phase. And it looks cool.

Did a quick cantilever beam calc, and the shock mount bung is good for 2300lbs+ without having to worry about material yield...
