I would like to make one of these for my 74 build. I was wondering if you could provide some dimensions to cut this "Chinook Salmon Jaw" ?It appears that you have removed about a 1/4" from the cutting edge of the jaws and then squared up the hook portion, about 3/8" X 1/2" long and beveled slightly. How much was removed from the top to allow it to get inside the Trunnion?
