I'm builidng an anti wrap bar for my 40 and need to notch some 2" 1/4" wall DOM. Does anyone have a tubing notcher I can use or borrow?:)

I have the Harbor Freight unit I bought to build me roll cage with. It's not elegant, you need a 1/2" and you take your life in your hands using it, but it works.

That's my life with Franken-40 :D

Ricardo came over tonight so I gave it to him since he is much closer to you. There are 2 ways to use it: Chuck it up in a drill press and it works great, but you need a drill press with an 18" stroke so it's really big.

OR

Bolt it to your work bench like I did and chuck a 1/2" drill on top. Make sure you are strong enough to hang on to that sucker when it binds up so you dont get wrapped around and beat up.

Anti wrap bar?

Pretty sure the best design for one of those is dubbed a "4 link"... :D

LOL! My budget is already blown.:eek:

However, Since I have made all these mods a spring over and 4 link is not out of the realm of possibility. Before I do this I need to remodel the garage so I can get the thing inside.:D

Jeff,
I can loan you my notcher for a short time if needed.
