Actually, there may be one hiding in my dad's shop. Dont know if he has a metal cutting blade for it though.

Plasma cutter would give me a boner. I dont cut enough to justify it though.

theyre not all theyre cracked up to be you still have to use the grinder to clean up after. i use my band saw and jig saw way more than my plasma cutter cause i hate having the compressor running too. it does come in handy for some things though.

With proper settings and having the torch at the right height, there should be little slag on the back side of the cut. I use my plasma cutter for everything that involves cutting now.

if you plan on mig or tig welding the material it still needs to be cleaned up with the grinder. it has its place i just feel like the bandsaw is more convenient for most of the shit ive been doing lately.

Seat pan progress. Rolled the edges around the frame rails and am using cut up grips between the pan and frame. Havent settled on a way to mount it yet though.

Cutting sheet metal with a jig saw is such a pain and is hard to get a nice straight cut for me. I've gotten pretty good at using a 4 1/2" grinder.

Been working on a shed with my dad and uncle.

But your flag decal won\'t get you into Heaven anymore, they\'re already overcrowded from your dirty little war.

Any recommendations on good woodworking books?  Specifically on how to design / build your own complete hardwood furniture.

Still in the UK for a few more months but want to start doing some research before I move back for mission: build myself all new furniture.

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

Welded up this desk in shop. Going to layer a bunch o' BMX and automotive stickers on top then put thin acrylic over that so there's no bumps while writing.
