Brief Description:  Worked on Cleveland brakes and make axel support b

I wonted to make boxes at the end of the landing gear where the axels bolt onto so heat can be dissipated that comes from the brakes.
The Cleveland brakes are to be mounted low so clearance from the leg is achieved. The brakes were not in the right spot so holes had to be added and now this is fixed and ready for the boxes to be made.
There has been a few incidences were the brakes have gotten very hot and heated the resin legs enough that they changed their shape. The boxes are to remove that heat before it gets to the glass legs. The aluminum got very hot just tacking the corners and when I removed from the leg the leg was 30 degrees C lower. I can see that the aluminum will take the heat with no problem and save a problem from happening.

I picked up a 220V Super 200P Tig AC/DC, Stick, Plasma, welder from Worriorwelding in China on EBay and it worked extremely well welding the ¼ “ aluminum plates
