    Step 1

    I started by making two sets of plywood braces that would hold the bar clamps as close to the outside edges of the bed as possible. The rectangular holes in each must provide for a snug hold but still allow for easy movement. The braces are held to the Fireball's frame with three bolt-and-washer connections.

    The vise-action side of the clamp would protrude in the front of the machine attached to the wooden brace in front by two small bolts run through two small holes easily drilled in the aluminum bar clamp base.

    Step 3

    To gain a small bit of clearance I ground off the lip on the moveable boot for the clamp. About twenty seconds on the grinder and this step was complete.
