    Poor Man's Centering/Measuring Pins

    I turned thes bolts out on the lathe to help me set the height on an upper control arm bracket I was welding onto the frame of an Astro van I am building. Made it real simple to set the height using my Poor Man's Height gauge.
    These are very simple and quick to make. Just point them off in the lathe and bolt into the mounting hole in the UCA Plate.

    Setting the height with my Poor Man Contractors Square.

    Thanks for looking.
