That will be something I can use all the time given the right angles and pipe sizes.

Beats trying to use a drill press or vice for the job ;-}

Same for a good saw.
Cole brought his big Jepson chop saw with a new metal cutting blade over too.
That will make short work of making the new bases I think.
What I bought there for bending pipe isnt a jig but rather an entire pipe bending set up, it does good on thicker wall pipe but on thin wall stuff you have to be careful and I can get tight bends or the tubing will crinkle and get a flat spot on the bottom, if pipe was full of sand and capped on each end it would probably do a lot better for thinner tubing.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
