Found the worst project ever and at a bad time, Shoulder level or higher with the arms! Took me a while to find an answer to part of my problem.
The monkey on a stick and a scrap of stainless from a plumbing job in a brewery held the front radius alone. Many, Many :beer: s
May this piece please stay in place forever :worship:

I did a lot of searching for a chuck box, and am just starting to gather the things I want to put in it.
I have not seen anything done that's removable in any flatbacks or cargo trailers; If you have done it,
have any good ideas or suggestions please chime in.
While I clean up a (lot) in prep to get started again.
