8/14: top





The top. The top consists of a flat plate with 2 vertical plates welded on top. A pin is added for the hinge action. The top rotates on/off the box on the pin.

The indentations in the 2 plates allow the pins you can see in the knee to hold the top down while the bottom is being lifted up. The plates are shaped the way they are to provide clearance for the knee as it is being swung.
