ETS Drift Ute – Notching the tube

I made these tools with the intention of making bar work easy, i didnt relise it would change my life though. As with all metal work the right tool makes the job quicker, easier and neater. My intention with this build is to gain skills, gain tools and end up with a hand fabricated race car from concept to track in around 6 months. Its exciting to say the least, with a deadline set and an interstate unveiling its full steam ahead!

  5. Looks good as always! You should mount a degree wheel on the notcher to make the process a little quicker.
