For the first time, your friends at Baileigh are giving the OFN crowd
a chance to win one of our brand new TN-250 tube notchers!
On top of that, we’ll even pick up the UPS ground delivery
charges to any address in the continental United States!

That's right!
The team at Baileigh Industrial
has done it again!


More Options. More Adjustment. More Productivity.




Simply stated, the TN-250 provides more tube and pipe notcher for your money.
This is not your typical hole saw notcher.
Built of solid steel and sweat, this notcher makes all others look like baby toys.
Take a look at the video to find out why the TN-250 dominates the competition.


The Contest:

What YOU need to do: Go to our website, read up on the TN-250, watch the video and learn all you can about the notcher.

http://www.bii1.com/notchers/tube-notcher-tn250.php

Once your brain is swelling with this knowledge, post back in this thread some reasons why the Baileigh crew should pick you to win this notcher! We are looking for a true fabricator who will show off this notcher and what it can do right when they get it.
Someone with fabrication skills, and a project lined up and ready to fab. Someone who will make us proud.

What do you want to build?
What do you think sets the TN-250 apart from the crowd?
Why should we pick you?


Please remember that this is a contest....
have some fun and BE CREATIVE with your entry! (A tip: We like pictures, videos and cool stuff like that, so the simple “I’m in!!” post has a hard time getting seen).
Pictures of past builds, past fabrication projects and fabrication action shots of your work always score well with the judges.
Should you win, we are going to need photos; testimonials, a couple You Tube videos, and build threads started showing just how incredible your new TN-250 really is.
This would be used both here on the OFN and also on the Baileigh Industrial websites here and in the UK.
International, baby! In a way you will become the next “celebrity spokesperson” for The new Baileigh TN-250.



The Rules:


The contests runs from 11-22-2010 to 1-1-2011
Entries close at 12:00pm CST (high noon!) on 1-1-2011. Winners will be notified on this thread and will have one (1) week to respond and accept their prize.
Should the chosen winner not claim their prize, another winner will be chosen by the judges, and so on until the prize is claimed.

Not just anyone off the street has a chance at this awesome notcher, as it is limited to the OFN forum only.
Get your entries in early and be creative! If anyone has any questions regarding this contest please let us know by asking them in this forum, sending a pm, or contacting us direct through our website.

I apologize for the delay in posting our submission (I posted early as I wanted a good spot), I had to wait until our holiday shut down.
We just finished up a military job in which while we are doing the werk there are no cameras allowed in the shop.

to answer your questions of

What do I want to build?

Everything, 100% from start to finish, including the finish, Streetwerkz.com custom powder coat of course. Automotive, furniture, ornamental, unique, hand rail, pot & pan holders, tool holders, coat racks etc... I am a project junkie, the sky is the limit.

Currently my main personal project is a 1930 Ford Model A Sedan, much of which we will fab the parts for. Including, but not limited to...

Roll cage
Suspension components
motor mounts
trans mounts, etc

http://www.offroadfabnet.com/forums/...ead.php?t=6606

All made from tubing, which will need to be notched by the TN-250 of course


What sets the TN-250 apart from the rest of the crowd?


Simply stated everything, the only shared concept with less performing hole saw notcher's...is hole saw notching.
The Baileigh Industrial TN-250 simply out classes, out performs & is a greater value than ALL other hole saw notcher's on the market today.

With features like a stout frame, self centering capture vice that has the ability to clamp on a bend, a 1 1/4" Thompson shaft to reduce chattering
& being MADE in the USA.... what other product could compare?
The ability to notch different diameter tubes, flat stock for tabs & brackets without any tool changes ad's to the value and versatility of any shop/tool owner when it comes to doing a quality job, as efficiently as possible.

I would say the most important difference's could be summed up to the 3 V's.


Versatility
Value
Very frigging cool!!!


I have a expensive grit notcher, that I love, it werkz well, sadly even it's not as versatile as the TN-250. My grit notcher cost 10x more, and cant offset notch the center of a tube, notch accurately on a bend, etc.

I have used some of the "budget" type hole saw notcher, and quite frankly they have all been poorly engineered, chattering, annoying inaccurate tools. From what I see in the video, the TN-250 doesn't seem to have any of the problems due largely to the very stout nature, & well thought out design features.

Lastly, I say design.

Unlike many other tool manufactures who simply copy other company's designs, possibly making minor improvements (on a now thanks to the TN-250 out of date or ineffective technology) & slapping a different sticker on it.

Baileigh decided to lead, rather than follow, and change the entire notching concept. It's obvious for ANY person to see the forward thinking that went in to this design concept, the way that Baileigh has brought the final product to market to improve the quality, and productivity of any fabricator, be it the guy in his garage, or a high end chassis shop.

Why should Baileigh pick me?

We at Streetwerkz like to think of our company as leaders in the custom metal finishing industry. Werking on advancing the quality we produce, staying versatile to serve our customers every need, & innovative thinking that keeps us a step ahead of our competition. A common way of thinking our 2 company's seem to share, & take pride in.


I come from a background of successful competing, & have been a national and world champion. I therefore understand how to deal with large company's in a promotional manner. I have been sponsored by large international corporations, and understand how to be part of a team, and how to werk together for a large scale goal.

The first major project I will use the TN-250 for will be the first of it's kind, in my industry (Custom Powder Coating) and both the hot rod community the project will gain a ton of notoriety.

Our werk has been featured in multiple magazines, and on several t.v. shows.
We tirelessly strive to do the highest quality werk we can & share it with the world as much as possible. We take great pride in the werk we do!!

I currently have build threads on 5 different hotrod, and racing forums. I also update my progress on Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter on a regular basis. I have no problem adding how useful, and helpful the TN-250 is, and how critical it's use in tube notching is. This would not be a "one shot deal" so to speak on my part, rather this could be a situation where thousands of people can learn about the TN-250. Some potential clients for the first time in 5 years (or more) from now by viewing my build logs, social media sites, and having access to ask me questions directly, at which point I can of course educate then direct them to Baileigh's sales staff to hopefully help close the deal.

Residual sales if you will.

Lastly I am a current customer of Baileigh Industrial tools, I know the quality of the tools, I use them, and I believe in them. Brand loyalty has already been earned with me from Baileigh, so I would have no problem passionately endorsing, and promoting the TN-250


Current projects
In November we just finished a 1929 Ford roadster pickup that is slated for several magazines in the hot rod, and metal finishing communities

We are currently werking on a 1967 Pontiac GTO that once all the sheet metal werk is done on will be powder coated a 7 stage candy blue. This Project is slated for completion spring 2011.

We also werk on our shop vehicle a 1930 Ford model A sedan.

The unique aspect about the Streetwerkz shop car is that we intend to build as much of the suspension components as possible in house... out of tubular steel products, all of which will need notched. The sedan will also get a full tubular steel inner structure, and roll cage. The thing that will set this project apart from the rest of the crowd is that the entire vehicle, body and all will be 100% custom powder coated with graphics, images, and more. Our current plan for the body is for it to have over 10 different candy, metallic, and pearl powder coat colors on it... a powder coating, and automotive industry first. Yes, we have powder coated car body's for a primer coat, and we have also done the body werk, then powder primer, color, and clear coat.
NOBODY has done multiple color graphics in powder coating on an entire car body.... until Streetwerkz


We don't just talk the talk, we deliver!!

Respectfully

A few past pic projects..

I'd love one. Unfortunately all of my metal bending projects are in limbo. My new place doesn't have much of a shop yet.

I'm considering selling most of my jeeps, and about the only project I can think of right now is adding a front-end loader to my 1951 Massey-Harris 40hp tractor. It would be cool, but I haven't even made it to the napkin drawing stage for this one.

So if you guys want to see some red-neck tractor fabrication then count me in.

Here's a couple pics of the bike frame we built for my senior design project. I'll have to find some finished pics, but this shows the bends and notching.

Hey Guys, I'd love to win this thing and put it to use in my shop! (WARNING: Lots of pictures and video ahead!) I've been into doing metal fab for just a few short years but I've really learned a lot and built some pretty cool stuff. Don't do it full time, but would like to transition that way eventually. I don't really do any fab with trucks and buggies...mine is all ATV related. Mostly three-wheeler (Yes, the illegal death trap things ) and then some quad stuff. CR500 engine conversions into 250R frames, swingarms, sub-frames, a number of different things really. My first real fab project, CR500/ATC250R conversion is what I'll start off with.

So this is how it was when I was racing it with the 250cc motor.



And here it is in the engine swapping stage




Finished!



Some video of me test riding it on youtube after it was finished with a helmet camera: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJiU9ZHrzgg

And then I built 8 more of these same conversions (Mostly for friends)




And then some other more recent projects.


Tapered square tube style swingarm (I posted a thread bout it here on OFN when I made it)

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...c&id=692779236
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...3&id=692779236
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...c&id=692779236

Aluminum swingarm modification (Mated the front half of a dirtbike swingarm to the back half of a quad arm for a dirtbike/threewheeler conversion project)

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...5&id=692779236
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...8&id=692779236

ATC250R Frame Fixture. This is a project I've been dying to get started on and make full frame from scratch, but only having the milling machine to notch tubing on has been keeping me from getting going on it. Having the TN-250 notcher with the radial vise would SURE make that easier for me!

http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s...C/SDC15402.jpg
http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s...C/SDC15404.jpg

And then this is my baby, I just finished this project last week and got to try it out. Its an arched tubing style swingarm





More pictures here:
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...2&id=692779236
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...0&id=692779236

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...7&id=692779236

There are a TON of projects I'd be more willing to jump into and do if I had a notcher like the TN-250 to do the notching in bends, and being able to notch from both sides is a HUGE advantage. Notching tube is like the single slowest process for me on doing anything right now with using the milling machine, and working around the vice is really difficult when your tube isn't just straight. Plus, I don't have a 3 axis vice to put on the mill bed so with just turning the head I'm really limited to the amount of angle I can put in the notches also.

Anyways, thanks for ya'lls time. I've got a half a dozen people getting onto me to build arched tube style swingarms for them too now, and with the TN-250 I could get really creative with the gusseting because of the ability to notch in bends. And that 250R frame from scratch is another project it'd be awesome on, but its a little bit further down the road at the moment.

In for a chance to win a notcher!

My cage is pretty much done, but still need to make tube bumpers and fender protection. My project is a 2001 Montero Sport, caged, chopped rear roof, sas'ed, lockers, doubler, hydro assist, and 35's. Hope to be back on the trails by spring.

Build thread > http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=834107

Save me from my HF notcher.
Thanks for the chance.

I'd love a chance to win the TN-250 Tube Notcher!

My ongoing project is a frame off build of a 1966 Toyota FJ-40 (aka LandCruiser). The build started in January of 2008.

Here it was as I bought it:


I needed to strengthen up the crossmember to support the antiwrap bar:

This was made out of 1.5"D x 1/4" wall DOM tubing. I started with a cheap HF notcher that blew apart half way thru the first cut. Ended up using the plasma and lots of grinding for the remainder of the job.

Here is some notching I did for the rear bumper mounted spare tire carrier:


Here is the finished anti-wrap bar. 2" x 1/4" DOM. I really could have used your notcher here:


Here was the project as of September 2010:

It's now spring over, shackle reversed, outboarded FJ55 springs, FJ62 axles, and saginaw power steering with high steer.

Here are a couple of pictures from October 2010:
My first paint job...




Plans for the winter are Full Cage - tied to frame, Rock Rails, Skid Plates and Front Bumper. The Baileigh TN-250 could get a lot of work here!
I'm no professional, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express parking lot one night with a blown rear-main. The only thing that could make me a better fabricator would be tools from a professional company (and lots and lots of practice). Baileigh is that company!

No matter the outcome of the contest, thanks for hosting it!

What I like most about this hole notcher.....

What I like most about this hole notcher.....

Guys, this is the only hole notcher in its class that will keep the center of the tube at the exact same location no matter what the diameter of the tube. Most tube notchers will hold the material the same up and down, however, left to right will change because the tube will sit in the side "V" notch at a different depth according to the diameter.

What does this mean?
Once the material is clamped, the point as to where the center of the tube intersects the center of the hole saw is always the exact same spot, no matter the angle of cut.

How is this helpful?
If you cut a tube to the exact length of center to center of where it sits in the assembly, the location of where the tube needs to be set out of the clamp is exactly a given location, no matter the angle. This is done because the center of tube is exactly over the point of rotation of the hole saw pivot arm in all cases (except if you are cutting a bend).
In other notchers, as you change the tube diameter it will not have its center over the pivot point, hence, changing the point of intersection at every angle of cut.

NO MORE GUESSING AS TO THE LOCATION OF THE TUBE IN THE CLAMP. MEASURE TWICE (always a good practice), CUT ONCE and IT WILL FIT!!!!

Shane this isn't exactly what you are looking for, however, it was a point that I don't think you guys emphasize enough.

Later,
Cris

Wow, thanks so much for giving us OFN fabbers this awesome chance.

That's an impressive little gadget. I sure could use one...

Upcoming builds of mine. Full roll cage for my Jeep, grille guard for the bumper on my F-250, and hell, I have all kinds of projects...

Just look at all these projects that could use or could have used a snazzy notcher.

Well Shane, I don't have too many pix of my work, and no vids at all... But here's where i'm at... I'll attach some pix of what i've done in the past, but i'm looking to turn my hobby into something more than a hobby... The last year i've ben increasing my tool collection to that end. I bought a good Delta drill press, a Millermatic 211 welder, a 4X6 horizontal bandsaw, and about to drop the hammer on a good plasma unit to replace my oxy/acety setup.
First, heres some pix of what i've done.

now heres whats in the works now... i have a 94 toyota truck that i want to make into a buggy... pics of what Im thinking of below...thats just to start with... I also love sand and have several sets of plans for bike and sled engine powered rails i would love to make.
If I win this notcher, I'll definately be taking a lot more pix and steal my GF's vid camera for video as well... Also, I'll proudly wear my Baileigh Hat, and maybe a T-Shirt too and I'm sure i'll have NO trouble expounding on the many virtues of this highly versatile and well built notcher!

Very nice!

I'm sure your entry would score well with the judges with a couple shots of your hat in action!

Thanks Shane and crew for this giveaway!

When I first saw the TN-250, I put it on my wishlist. I've been promising myself that I'll buy one for the next big tube project I get into...but free is always good!

The biggest reason why I want a TN-250 is the ability to notch short stuff and close to bends. I always seem to find myself having to do stuff like this shock mount on my supermodified project:



There's six pieces of tubing in there! They're all short, one's bent, and several are welded into joints with two other pieces. I don't want to know how many hours are involved in this...between a JD2 notcher, the milling machine, grider, and files (and not charging enough!), I'm sure I'm into sweatshop wages. This would have been much faster and easier with a TN-250.

I've also been working in a two car garage for the last couple years since I moved. The fact that the TN-250 swings the drill rather than the tube is big, because I usually wind up having to clear a path for the tube through all the equipment in the garage.

The tube work on my supermodified project is pretty well done. But, I have something else lined up...my pavement sprint car (shown in my previous, much more spacious shop ).

I started this project in 2006, but have built two supermodifieds since then. It looks like all the tube work is done, but there's a bunch of stuff I want to redo, having had almost 5 years to think about it. I'm definitely reworking the rear shock mounts, and possibly doing a whole new rear clip. Not to mention making a bunch of spares.









I'm sure if I win, it'll be sporting some Baileigh decals!

Graham
