Saddle Ring and Rail

A replacement saddle ring and rail goes for about 80 bucks. So being a tightwad, I decided to try to make my own.

I started out with strap stock that was significantly oversized and milled it down to the right width.

Cut and shaped the pads and bent the rail to fit.

After braising the parts together, I drilled and counterbored the screw holes.
