Opposing bends to hold a bar (figure 8)

I am drawing parts of my John Deere 10P (10 cu ft) cart and I am stumped with the cutouts in the sheet metal bracket that hold the axle. Picture the plate with one R.50 bend in the center and a bend on each end to create flanges. Then 6 cutouts across the center bend which are bent opposite the original with the same radius to capture the shaft. A .188 gap with a full radius is between the alternating up and down bends. The center bend is on the front plane, the flanges are on the top plane, and the right plane is the part center.
