    Anybody here ever built their own notcher? I'd be interested in design plans.

    There are problems with tools like the Low Buck notcher - you've got to guess at how much material to remove for anything other than 90 degrees. Get it wrong and you have a bad fit. The hole saw versions have a limit on the sharpness of the angle. I got to borrow the use of a Mittler and was able to cut a 27 degree angle! The Mittler is high dollar and no way could I afford one just to build just one cage but it sure made life easy!

    My JD notcher looks good. However, I think I am going to weld a 1/4 inch thick piece of aluminum at a right angle to the notcher so instead of claming the tool in a vise end for end I will have that flange to clamp to. What do you think?

    Hole saws come in many sizes and yes they do come smaller than 1/2. I have a similar version of the notcher posted and it works great. You can make high angle notches, offset notches, compound notches and clamp it to a larger pipe and drill holes through for sleeves. That is very handy for race cage building as you can shave off small amounts to dial down to a tight fit. With this type unit the shaft is larger than 1/2 so you can't make high angle drill throughs in sizes under 1"

    Thank You. My ten minutes of interwb search didn't find one. I'll try again.

    There don't SEEM to be any 1/2" hole saws. Looks like they start at 3/4".

    No demand for it, is there another way to notch 1/2" tubing or maybe it's just not done? It's probably a stupid question.

    Thank You

    The Williams Lowbuck notcher is the only notcher i will ever use again, it has a case hardened jaw that takes a bite out of the steel. all you need is a 4 foot steel handle to operate notcher.
    Ive used those, they arent as accurate for angles as a hole saw, or end mill, or sanding belt style.. Good for pipe though, and fast.
