    Weld up the spider gears until you can afford to get the detroit. Cheaper then the Lockright and you can switch to the detroit when the funds are available.

    Don't follow those directions in the link. There is a better way to do it. Look up jethro built. He makes weld ball spools out of open 14B much stronger. my .02 though

    I agree. I've personally done a Jethro lock style and it turned out great. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
