    Default 4 Link Jig - Tool Tips

    Finally made myself a Jig to set up 4 linked trucks today before getting started...what a time saver.
    If you haven't made one yet and build at least 1 truck per year...make this your next 20min project!


    I set the frame and body in the general location to get a good starting point to begin building the links.


    Just made one side using threaded rod, then cut all of my tube & rod for both sides.

    Is the width adjustable if you are going to use different axles? How are the rails connected?

    Sure is...both the main MDF rails and aluminum rails are just held in place with some wood screws. In this version you simply assemble it with the components in it. I'm sure however that one of you machinist/technical types could easilt make it adjustable using some knobs and sliders to make it a little less primative.
    In the end it makes quick work of a 4 link setup!
