    Taxi Meter Mounting Bracket

    Been making these for a local taxi company as of late. Sorry no welding involved. The bracket attaches to the sunglass holder in the roof console. Made of 16G stainless. Would have rather used aluminum, but we have a bunch of this stainless lying around. Might as well use it.

    Kool. Now you gotta figure out something that makes the meter run backwards

    I took a taxi in Portland from the airport to the rental place to pick up a car. I coulda had a good meal for what I paid for those few miles.

    Speaking of meals...................

    If you're on the long haul from Tulsa to Portland..........check out the fast food Italian place in the Vegas airport. Best GD chicken parmesan I've had since I was a kid.

    Get to my age, and your most memorable moments are when you're stuffing your face.

    Good use of metal BTW

    Looks good. The stainless will outlast the car in Hawaii.

    Have you thought about punching the holes rather than drilling them? Easier to debur, if required at all. This would eliminate the sanding marks around the hole.

    You might also look into using a hand countersink deburring tool like below or a countersink on a power drill if your careful.

    Thanks for the input. I would much rather punch the holes, might have to look into an affordable punch. And yes, deburring tool is a very good idea. Anyone know of a quality metal punch, manual, maybe 1/8" capacity?

    I have a Heinrich Number 6.

    Some previous owner put a gauging table on it (1/4" plate with a grid of 1/4x20 tapped holes in it), and it's been serving my purposes well. There are a couple on ebay right now.
