Default #6 The chain tensioner

I used my bandsaw to make nice even cuts, then drilled the 2 parts together to make sure they are perfectly matched. There is an angle bracket that the axle bearing will mount to, and thick reinforcing plate that will go underneath the slider assembly. It is all locked together with 1/2" grade 8 bolts. Then you can see the finished product. There will be 3 of them, and they can draw the axle back nice and evenly (I will check it with a tape measure using the front axle as a guide).
