Step-n-Start - A Motor Pull-Starting Assist for Those that Need a Little Help


Step 12: Bolt the Hinge onto the Base Board

Picture of Bolt the Hinge onto the Base Board
The "Base Board" is the 48" 2x4 that doesn't have a pulley bolted to it.  It gets a hinge in this step.  We traced the hinge to make sure it didn't move while we bolted it on.  Then we drilled pilot holes for the 1/4" bolts.  A washer goes under each bolt head.  The 1/4 x 1.5" lag bolts we used to hold the hing on.  If you use a different style of hinge you may have to use flat head screws instead of hex heads like we used.
