Three years late I guess it is time to continue this thread.

A few weeks ago I was building some angle iron tables and needed to notch a few hundred pieces of 1x1x1/8" and 1/4" angle. So I decided to give a harbor freight portaband a try. Keeping my Milwaukee for freehand cutting. Threw this table/mount together real quick (and crude) with full intention of rebuilding it when the project was done. Now that it's mounted and used though I think I'm going to leave it alone.

I built the frame, engine and did a bunch of fabrication on this truck about 4 years ago. finally everything else came together earlier this year. Owner kept changing ideas and the truck sat at a few other shops for much of that time. I really wish I had all of the pics from the initial build of this truck but they were all lost on my computer.

Very nice Zach. Sometime I'd like to see the whole layout and metal forming process to make those panels under the hood.
