Ok i'm running a bunch of 3/16" plate to the laser cutter for work and i'm tagging on some car parts.

Shock tabs, Coil buckets and strips of gusset material.

What ado you think of these designs and what else should i include. These are being cut out of our crop material. I'l be sellign the excess so if you need any special order parts let me know. I havn't worked up prices for these.

Gusset material. THis is to be cut to length and welded between the tabs used for leaf spring mounts and link mounts.

those shock tabs look like what i want to weld to my bumper for shakles,they would have to be flat rather than rounded at the end so they could be welded to a square tube bumper.

would ya be able to get those ?

does your shop do custom laser cutting or is this a perk for you?
my cutter is over in Gloucester and you are local

We farm otu our cutting.

The shock tabs are for a 3" tube or 1-3/4 tube

3" tube ones have a 9/16" hole and the 1-3/4 are in a 3/8" or 1/2" hole.

might want to consider make the bottle opener gusset (and other gussets) have bigger angle to them so they can be cut to size for any degree of join.
