I got my box of brackets from Nikitas Woodworks just today. These assembly
brackets are not like those overpriced, aluminum things that have been
advertised for about a year now and discussed here at length. Brian shipped
a dozen of them and included a nice 6" tri-square. These brackets are cut
from about 8 gauge steel(.128"). I checked every one of them with my
Starratt square and all showed no daylight beneath the square. They appear
to be laser cut and machine bent. There is no evidence of machining on the
faces...well, hell, they're dead on square. I've ordered a pair of those
other overpriced, aluminum brackets from a much-discussed-here vendor and
they are supposed to be here tomorrow. My plan is to do some evaluation
stuff...even some crude destructive testing. It may be several weeks before
I can get the results posted because I'm getting ready to head on down to
the Keys for a little break from this winter here in Mid-MO. As Brian says,
email to order and note to remove the REMOVE from his address.
