Kogswell P/R rack boss strut jig

This is a jig that I used to set up the fork crown stays on the front rack for Russell’s Kogswell so I didn’t have to rely on a maze of clamps to hold things in place while brazing.

Now that Kogswell is dead and no new P/Rs will ever be appearing (yes, I know that Longleaf said they were going to do it, but they’ve fallen into the deep hole of 650b flakiness so I’m not going to hold my breath) it’s probably gone past its sell-by date already, but at least it gave me a good way to do this tricky bit of assembly for Russell’s P/R.
