    Anyone have a cheapy tube notcher that I may barrow? I have everything I need to install my in cab cage except a tube notcher. I rather not buy one since I just need it for this project.

    I'm in Los Angeles.

    Thanks!

    You think you won't need the notcher again but you will. Go buy a good one like the Pro-Tools or JD2 one and thank me later.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    There's always the hole saw method. Works well if you don't have crazy angles.
    Or just mark the tubes and use a cut off wheel.
    Good for one project. Tedious and time consuming for large or many projects. You just need to be good with a pen and grinder.

    it works great! I don't know how I got by with the HF notcher for so long... It notches a lot quicker too.
