    No tubing yet.....went over to Tube Service on S. Milpitas Blvd.....WOW! Those guys have tubing for days!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Got a catalog, and some sample pricing. Minimum order is $200, but you can't really buy much for under $200 anyway...

    I spent yesterday building storage space in the "man space"...Once I have to start storing 20ft sticks of tubing, things are going to get crowded!!

    I also built a "rolling table" that the extra frame is now bolted to, so I can easily wheel it out of the garage for more "bending room".....

    Today if I can get away with it, I will finish building the storage racks and do the final painting (that's wall paint, not tubing paint) and get the mess all cleaned up. My hope was to finalize and order for tubing so that I could place that tomorrow, and they said it can be delivered for free the next day (Tuesday). That would give me enough extra time to figure out how to put the bender together and get it bolted down to the floor....

    I'm trying to stay calm and do the "prep work" that needs to be done....you can't believe how tempting it is to just get some tubing and start bending things!

    Zakk... I'd head over to 4WPW on Lafyette in Santa Clara.
    i work just down the street from there.
    A lot of the time theres a car parked right next to the RTI ramp but sometimes it's open on both sides so you can use it. I'm not sure if you should go in the store and ask first or what...
