first unofficial tko tech saturday - 3/19

Postby eddie platt » Tue Mar 01, 2011 10:12 am

ok, so i figured we might as well try this. so well have the first one at my place. i dont have any gears to set up, so we cant make it about that. but i do need to bend some tube. and i still have my friends bender.

so the topic of the tech saturday will be bending tube. 3/19

if you need a piece of tube bent or anything like that, we can do it saturday. i plan on picking up a few big sticks of 1 3/4. so if you need a small piece i can cut it for you.

unfortunately i only have a die for 1 3/4. im going to try and make a 1 1/2" die for it before then by cutting some 1 3/4" in half, but i dont know if that will work too well.
i plan on bending some fender bars to tie into my sliders and making a few frame tie ins for my cage.

so come over if you want. hopefully itll be nice out. i plan on firing up the smoker and smoking either a brisket or pork while we are working. your welcome to bring a 6 pack if you want.
let me know if you are interested, and ill pm you the address.

I might come to.check out your.bender setup. It looks a little easier to use than mine. Mine is a jd2 model 3. I've got 1.75" and 1" dies for it.

I'll come if I'm free.

It's hard to tell, but it looks like they're the same.
