Looks like you've been associating with SlagKing.
Actually, those look a lot tighter & smoother than I can do with my HF contraption, for which I seem to have almost no use.

TEK, I think you've done right well. Nice even bends and ends.

Good idea!
I to have enjoyed the benefits of shaping with pipe, almost the same way.

I will be glad to share, with your permission of course, the next step of scrolling with pipe, that you can add to your inventory, with a pillaging of your thread.

I will need your permission before I do it though......and it may take sometime, I thinking later this evening.

heh... I'll wait for the permissions too. I can show ya mine as well, but it only does smaller radii.

Hadn't thought about using the vise grip like that though, I'll have to try that later.

I pulled mine from the back end of a volkswagen bug... but it would not surprise me a bit if yours was bigger.


You've got more pillaging experience than I. But I'm catching up quick.
