  • Tubing notcher

    Has anyone used one of the tubing notchers from harborfreight? Are they any good?

    I have one and it is ok. I have already built one roll cage with it and it will do more. My one gripe with it is that the hole saw isnt centered and I had to shim the clamping part out. The threaded portion of the shaft also is not centered so I only get to use half of the teeth on each hole saw. It is ok for the money, but when I do a few more cars I will buy a good one.

      Rock,
      I've got the "Jig-a-Joint" notcher from a company called Tubular Dynamics. I got it back in 1990 or so, it was the first hole saw notcher I remember seeing. If the company is still around I'd recommend it. If not take a look at the offerings by JD Squared. I bought one of their tubing benders and have been happy with it. I've heard good things about the notcher on some of the off-road boards I read.
      You get what you pay for. (Ok, now I sound like like my dad.)

        Thanks guys for the info, harbor has it on sale for 39 bucks, figure I'll give it a try, I mainly want it to build tree stands.
