Finished my chute blocker

Finished and installed my chute blocker today. The action is pretty smooth. Will put it through it's paces next spring.

Looks great. Very nice fab skills. The only constructive criticism I could add is to add a support like shown in the pic attached. It just seem like it would strengthen it quite a bit.

Thanks for the compliment, and your recommendation for the support bracket that is a great idea. I think it will be okay without it, but will definitely make one if needed.

Great job, looks like you're pretty clever. How long did it take you to fab it together?
