    Default 48 wishbone window

    i have a beat 48 wishbone that im going to de rake. I would like to window the neck while im at it.
    Id have to make a new brace to fit in because everything thats left over from the original rake looks like a dogs breakfast.
    My question is what type of steel should i be making this brace out of ?

    Any common rolled steel of sufficient thickness will do but that kit is cheap and precut if you don't have any scrap handy. Otherwise yer local metal supplier or machine shop should have a scrap bin with usable cutoffs.

    Since I don't know your experience level have some standard warnings:

    The work requires precise layout. Weldors do that all the time in the field (inclinometers, digital levels with lasers etc are cheap).
    The work requires a decent welding machine not some 120V FCAW toy (which have their place but not there). This is not the joint to practice welding so if you don't weld often make several joints on similar clean stock then bend test them or saw them apart to ensure your weld is sound, or tack the work then have a pro finish weld.
    7018 stick works fine (and holds billions of dollars of pipeline together) as does a decent MIG machine. The person holding the stinger or gun, not the process, matters most.
