Um well use the cut off diagram posted or you can cut two 45 deg cuts. Plus your building a rack bud, Not a roll cage. Just fill the gaps and grind smooth. Your over thinking this and you can get a tube mother from harbor freight for like 30-50 bucks or something like that.

Speaking as one born and raised catholic... I am still recovering. And its been a looooooong time since I got away from that crap. That shit fucks your head up.

My advice is, if you don't feel you can jump thru their hoops, then don't. Do what you want to do because you want to.

Ben, click the apple symbol in the upper left corner of you desktop. From the menu, select About this Mac. What does it read? OS X 10.x.x?? Does the CPU line say Intel in it?

Not that old. You said 4 or 5 years old.

Is possible to upgrade it to 10.7, Lion, or even 10.8, Mountain Lion but shouldn't be necessary. And 4 GB of RAM should be plenty for most situations.

When was the last time you did a simple reboot. You told me you never shut your Mac down. A reboot will release all the items currently using RAM addresses. Your slowness could be all system functions are using a page file to store temp data. Page file is slow, uses hard drive space.

Ha ha I am running the exact same model as you are. Bought it back in early 2009. I do a full wipe on the hard drive every so often. Takes a while to do but it helps clean it up. All my stuff is backed up on my external so it is just apps to install. Mine is starting to act weird too and probably gonna end up reinstalling again soon

Get yourself one of these. They are awesome. I have several 500GB 7200 Seagate HHDs. I'll give you one to put into the enclosue.

This is what I do for backup. When the drive gets full of photos, just swap out the drive.

Mark. One suggestion from me. Get some flap discs. You're never gonna make anything that looks good using grinding wheels.

Thought about that too. But if anything was off by a little bit I would be back grinding anyway.
