You would figure it for sure. It's all in the wanna! I had never used one before this machine. Right after Obama's first election win, I was bored to tears, not much work coming in and even less income. I decided to build one to supplement our income. It has been a great project. I rarely get to have fun with it, as it is usually working on the industrial stuff for customers. But I do enjoy the times when I can get creative. The pics show oxy/fuel cutting 3" and some nice 16ga I cut for our bathroom. When I first started cutting, my wife said "none of that in our house", now I always have some project for the house LOL

Banged my head off of the wall trying to figure out how the heck I am going to get my front shocks mounted without being in the way of anything.

Drilled a hole through one of my new brake lines. It couldn't have been the short side line, it had to be the passenger's side front.
Flaring a line on the Jeep is no fun.
