Chest suspension frame

Frame fabrication

Fabricating the chest frame

I started working on the chest buss suspension frame. The outer rectangle, seen above, is made of heavy-gauge aluminum sculpture armature wire. The material is stiff but still bendable (not as hard to manipulate as welding rod, and brazable). The plan is to braze everything together starting tomorrow night.

Here’s the full rectangular frame with a few of the smaller-gauge crossmembers sitting across it. The actual chest wiring harness is sitting beneath. Of course once the frame is built, I’ll mount the wiring harness on top of it, rather than behind as it is seen here.

Right now, for ease of measurement, the frame is board-flat. Ultimately I’ll bend it into a more body-fitting arc that will be comfortable yet will properly space the lights out on my body.
