    Here's a nice little doo-dad for your tube fabrication.

    $3 ea. Of course they can be had with any hole size for different tube diameters.

    I assume you're talking about the first post. Yeah, I'm sure the imagination is the limit with those things.

    After looking at them.. they remind me of old soda can pull tabs ... really beefy pull tabs. :D

    Let's just say for example you are building a tube buggy and want to mount your shock to the tube. You'd slip two of these over the tube before its welded into place. Then when your ready to locate the shock its just a matter of positioning them and welding all the way around. Just a much stronger mount than a tab.

    Of course that's just one example. You can use them anyway you want to. I seem to be searching for better solutions for things I'm working on and that's where alot of this stuff comes from.

    they would work great for mounting seats in a cage.

    good deal on the floor plates, I'll prolly be ready to build my cage in 2 weeks. :)
