I'd put more slope in the front end trying for a bit more aero nose, and make it a bit wider than the stock Ural, anyway to reduce the area or make it move through the air easier, but that's just my opinion.DB

In another thinner life I rode bicycle allot, at 20 mph 20% of the riders effort is overcoming air pressure (wind) at 30 mph its about 60% anything you can do to smooth the flow helps save energy.Your a creative guy have at it.db

Great work...

are you using a Miller F-series Arcstation? Any thoughts, I've been debating on whether to bite the bullet and pick one up. My table is 24"X36"X1/2" plate about knee high, while I can move it, its not real portable.

I have no idea what you just said, but if you live on the Wet side of Washington then it sounds like you're somebody I should become friends with. Always wanted a friend with a metal shop in his garage!

Thanks db, the skills aren't a problem, adding another 20lbs to a table that is already 150-175lbs and has solid legs isn't going to make it any easier to move. Most of my stuff is portable so I can work away from my little shack, taking my table is a chore. The Arcstation may be the ticket and I would have more work space with both of them.

Zipper, sorry for the semi hijack of your thread, love the swingarm work, it solidifies the ideas that I had with my design. Looking forward to more.
