Year & 1/2 ago l started collected 80/20 jig fixture pieces from ebay and couple other places every other pay check.

Later l will build a jig similar to pic below for 2 wheeler w/blind faith/:) l have a small mill machine @ home and make some parts myself, some are welded by joe (some by me) then machined. I noticed in photo this guy used some hardwood, l like that idea.

[/URL]
_______________________________________

Below is 8020 ( collected on ebay)l used to make trike frame with jig laying flat. Now l have the vertical part of this different jig started for 2 wheeler, later will build 4 horizontal stations. 8020 can be fun. I collect it, it's costly. Money money!

[/URL]

My two wheeler has close measurements to trike, lil' shorter.

lower end ($$) 2 wheel idea with these hard drop outs. Looks like l screwed up and got it straight and ride'able at back,,, now if l can do front.

Dropouts reach in deep inside wheel well for another bolt. Stonger and easy to get to. This will be neighborhood cruzer and grocery getter and a learning curve.

First time 2 wheel building as amateur, built a jig here today to drill chain wheel axle holes in rear wheel well.


These wheel spacers are good for mock up, will get few sets cut on laithe.

Studied google/pintrest images of bicycle jig fixtures with 8020 from ebay (just type 8020- there are many),, l like the 40mmx40mm ones. They make a double row tube too.

I have figured out a fixture now. I will build it now with extra time. Already have some components pics in few post up of this thread.

While working on velomobile this project is on back burner but cooking quick.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11yfVHNcghw

Frt boom at machine shop to bore head tube hole. Will be put in jig and HYSOL aircraft-adhesive will hold it together with few gussets. Rear wheel house goes on with dow chemical u-428. Amateur build, learn as l go.

I think 8020 refers to Pareto's Principle.

thanks harry, now i'll google that/:)

Thanks harv:

80/20 refers to:
The Pareto principle is a principle, named after economist Vilfredo Pareto, that specifies an unequal relationship between inputs and outputs. The principle states that 20% of the invested input is responsible for 80% of the results obtained.

My tetz 8020 jig fixture/ slowracer grocery getter.
________________________________________

Ran out of parts after 2 1/2 hours. Back to catalog and ebay. Ran out of angles.

Thanks to Warren, he gave me a link and some reading to do.

I like these floor/ leveling-foot brackets that go on the profile: or rolling wheels. I can hang it on the wall when not in use.

Dont know what l got going on here but it's fun. Will eventually figure it out changing it 3 or 4 times and keep gathering and making parts to this jig fixture. I had most of the stuff,,, might as well build it. 2&1/2 hours today. I need more parts.

[update 26 march 2017] MOVING FORWARD AND MUCH MORE TO GO AND ORDER MORE 8020.

This jig fixture will hang on wall when not in use.
