So, Julian took a look at the brackets (from afar, through this site) and called “that’s a bit heavy looking”. I did a bit of thinking, and got the grinder out. The results are below:
- Original Weight: 380g
- chopping 5mm from the outer face and changing the chamfered corner: 60g
- polishing out the welds: 20g
- chamfering the long edges: 10g.
So the end result is a reduction in weight of 24%. Worth the effort for a few minuets work. Now… to the personal diet.
