Coming along nicely Chad, I'm looking forward to the next installment. I'm curious about the new dog posts - it's a bit hard to tell from the photo of the bridge, are the dogs sitting on the screws holding the new magnets extended through the bridge? The magnets look like they're in the same place as the original dog post and magnet hole.

Mike,
Yes, I am using the original holes for the dog post and mag mount.  The screws go through those holes, but then into stainless posts that the dogs pivot on.
I'll post more details as I get it finished up. Thanks!

Thanks!  I realized I'm actually using the same stand as Mike did (30-49) but I'm mounting it a little differently.  I won't be doing near the insane mods that Mike did though, his skills are on a whole different level!

Mike,
Here's a better explanation of the dogs.
I'm using 2-54 stainless screws, and stainless panel nuts.



I've counterbored the original dog post and mag holes about half way through the bridge so the panel nuts sit down into the counterbore.  You can see this in the original dog hole in this picture.  I also drilled and tapped a hole to attach the second dog spring.



As you mentioned, the screws for the dogs do double duty to hold the magnets as well.  I was concerned that the screws might be too small, but after countersinking the posts into the bridge, the dogs are plenty strong.  I've also set them up in sync as opposed to alternating to add extra strength.  I'm using Bryan's 5+1 drag kit and I'll probably load it with 30 or 40 lb. braid.

Thank you Sal!
Not really.  I did a few years running manual lathes and Mills making one offs, tooling, etc. Learned enough to be dangerous LoL!  Mostly I do engineering with some fabrication here and there.
We have an old Bridgeport I mess around with.
