    Thats cool!
    I chopped the back end off and I'm making corners that wrap around but thats just downright cool! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    what thickness diamond plate did you use? All I can find around here is 1/8" so its really hard to bend /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif
