I am in the process of setting up my shop to turn out a few engine mounts, along with the cabin main frames for my 701 & 750 build. I already have all the necessary welding and cutting equipement that is needed, along with a complete assortement of full length chrome moly tubing from 1/4" up to the 2" in size. What I am desperatly looking for, is information from anyone that has had experience in using any of the thin walled tubing notchers. I have seen almost all the notchers that are currently available from the various resellers, and I am wondering if anyone out there, has had any positive experience in using one, that they would be willing to share with me.
I was fortunate in finding a set of free plans that can be downloded from another builder type website, that describes the complete procedure of building your own, so I don't know which option might be best for me.
Although the site http://www.bikerradiomagazine.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=14&a... does not actually deal in airplane construction, is seems as though the need to cut and notch chrome moly tubing, is actually the same.
I would like to thank all those of you, who are willing to spend their time, in a responce to my concerns that might help me in any way, with my decision..
