    Is this right? Bend everything up then make the mitered joints? Is there a trick to getting just the right angle to miter at?

    Over at the Pirate board there is a new tech article on tube bending.
    It is an excellant article and is real easy to understand.
    After reading that I realy want a tubing bender now.

    Same here. Tin bender really made it sound simple. I have seriously though about getting a bender. I want to full cage the Lady's 79 since the kids ride back there. Probably will not put front legs because of the clearence issue and that truck doesn't see trails anymore but would like it in case some Jack off hits her and the truck goes turtle.
