    so i started sliders this weekend and i pretty much already finished them. one needs to be finished welded but the other one is done. so it just needs paint and the legs welded. It was a successful attempt and was alot easier than i thought it would be. The coper/notcher i purchased was by far the best thing i bought for the project!

    ill post some pics soon :D

    Solid! Self-built is always the most-pimpest.

    Wish I could work metal...may have to teach myself...

    Very cool. I started learning how to weld on my father in law's MIG machine. I really want to attempt some DIY armor in the future. I think I could pull it off.

    Kudos though, those things look good. Also curious as to what tubing you used.

    The coping bit? it should look just like a hole saw w/ an auber , at least thats what i used, technically it is probably more like a drill bit that spirals around and is in varying sizes according to what size tubing you are cutting.

    cant find the coping bit but this is what i used to make mine, along with a grinder which you can also use instead of getting either bit to do it for you it will just take a little more time.

    thats all you'll need then, and a good holding vise if you are using a hand drill and not a drill press and then the grinder or worst case scenario a file to get all the lil burs and buggers off the edges. Just be sure to use some type of lubricating liquid along with a metal cutting hole saw or the teeth will get hot and ware down, i broke 2 auber bits cause of that & you willl be good to go!
