Shoulder Hydraulic Part 2

In my last post I showed how I did the round parts of the shoulder hydraulic. In this post I will show how I did the square parts which mount it to the horseshoe.


The first step was to cut a piece of wood to the finished dimensions of the block. The top of the block is rounded over, so to do this I ran the piece on the router table with a large round-over bit to get the slightly rounded top. Once that I was done I could cut the piece into the appropriate sized blocks.


Next I laid out where the hole needs to be drilled in the block.


I drilled the hole on the drill press. I made a fixture to hold the piece while it was being drilled but I didn’t get a picture of it.


These pieces can then be slid on the ends of the round part and glued in place. Here is the completed shoulder hydraulic.
