It is starting to get hard to snap a good picture angle in this shorty. Rubber bext to a dime. Hope that helps on a thickness ref. It isnt too thick but it fits my needs.




Picture 3 says it all for ME including your post about can't cut a straight line?
My wife of 20 years used to say BS I can blindfold you with dental floss ? Keep your muck ups close enough the trim(even if you have to make your own?)can cover it.
If you can't understand that?
Then your to mucked up to be using tools anyway?
Safety first!!!

jolly roger- luckily i havent mucked up on anything to serious yet. I would not need much dental floss to blind fold me since my eyes are allways near shut & red as the devils a$$.
Safety first.. dad always says you can spot a joe by his fingers & toes, i still have all of mine.

G for Gardner..!!
I don't have a laser cuter for metal so I do what I can. I started with a printed image, cut it out on cardboard with a razor. spray paint image on work piece & cut.
I tried the dermal first but nope. moved to grinder with cut off wheel.











The millennial's answer to everything just google it.

That's great! Hack in an 'e' of some sort and send it in. You could be Google of the day.

I was going to make an E for it; but I popped it in me mouth.

I can't believe I didn't get the idea from seeing your duck

I wanted to take my tube in to have it bent by someone with a bender, BUT my dad being a 20 year ironworker always has to do it his way.
SO we cut a few notches with a chop saw & I welded the sucker up; I suck at welding but decent with a grinder.

I just need to cap the ends paint & weld together.

My makeshift sand blast thunder dome.
