Next, mark out the holes for the adjusters and weld them on. (mark the position of the original holes on the beam before you cut the center out to make this step easier)

Onc the end plates are welded on you can take the beam out of the jig and weld the insides

With the beam cleaned up you can fit it into the end plates and assemble it in the jig.
