Thank you, Bill! It took some time to get the measurements right for the bracket on the end that bolts up to the bedplate, the studs are not exactly in a straight line across from each other. Except if a bracket is made to fit the top two studs, and the bottom two studs. The top two studs are further apart than the bottom two are. It was fun to build, and so far it is doing a nice job. I haven't been able to do much to it lately. I still have to get a video of it too. Thanks again for your help in tracking down a replacement cylinder. Best Regards, Sam
