Tube Notcher

Postby Garreth on Mon Sep 02, 2013 8:33 pm

At it again...

Any one have access to or own a tube notcher?
Reason being is that I am doing the exhaust and need to notch one of the bends. I have seen a few homemade ideas, even ones that use the lathe, but trying to avoid the hassle of making a notcher.

If all else fails, anyone out there who has maybe put some thought and effort into a tube notcher and willing to share ideas or plans to build my own?

So i take it you've arrived at some dimensions , i went quiet as you had already done quite a bit of research. :)
