I'm working on nuts. I just picked up a lathe a couple of weeks ago and I'm waiting to get the electrical done so I can fire it up. I have a bender, welder, drill press, angle and bench grinders, access to a torch and some other goodies.

I design some of my parts in Rino 3D and save them in Autocad format so that the local fab shop can laser cut and CNC bend them for me. I just picked up a small run of front A-arm braces for Suzuki Sidekicks / Geo Trackers today. When I can I'll post up some pictures of them.

It's something the Mexicans didn't know about either when they built my house! Cheese and Rice! Some of my windows drywall is off by like 5/8s! It's just right for letting light in to wake you up when you work nights since the blinds obviously wont fit correctly.

That being put aside my primitive tools I think will let me enjoy even greater when I get the propper tools to do the job. I used two of my trucks as anchor points to bend out some bent tubing I had laying around to the right size. lol.

tell the truth...

I had to vote Moderate because of the tools that I OWN...

I have access thru work to be NUTS but we are working on getting new equipment that will put me into the NUCKEN FUTS area. I wish we would get a CNC Mill and Lathe, but I have to settle for CNC punches and brakes....manual mill and lathe....

I am too broke to become nucken futs on my own...

Just serious here

I'm just a serious fabber. I have a bender, mig welder, plasma cutter, and a portable band saw. All my tools are in my buddies garage cause I just moved to Amarillo TX. Here is a picture of my bumper I made. I need to get off my rear and take a few more..

Can't afford to have someone do it for me, so I do it all my self. What I don't have at my shop I have access to at freinds shops. From fab equipment to engine building, to a dyno.
