Adding a little pep to a bender and notcher

I believe it is Smashmetal that deserves the credit for the idea, so to work I went. I took my new degree ring for the bender and the Pro Tools notcher I got from Xtreme Crawlers and went to painting. A little red paint, sand paper, and some clear coat makes for a nice touch, better visability, and rust prevention.

Nice!!! I had thought about doing my notcher too but got to excited and had to use it.
How are you going to mount your notcher? I used the drawing that came with the notcher to make the notcher base plate. I think that there numbers are off on the slot for the angle ajustment. I had to make mine way big to make it work!

Thanks. I'm not sure how I'm going to mount the notcher yet. You have one hell of a setup, that gives me an idea or two. I have been so busy at work lately that I have had very little time to spend in the shop. I still have to make a cart for the bender.

Take care,
Josh
