    That's what I originally thought, for the most part it looks simple if u have a notcher and a bender.

    To do powder coating you are going to need an oven large enough to be capable of baking the finish on the largest piece. It won't fit in your wife's oven. There are cheap powder sprayers available, but the oven is usually the show stopper. To get the finish to hold well you are also going to have to sand blast and pressure wash the pieces before powder coating. Unless you are doing powder coating full time it just doesn't pay to invest in all of this.

    So I looked at what angles I can cut at with my band saw and I have 3 different pieces for cutting. One is 22.5, the second is 45 and the last is anywhere in between so I will be doing that to get the angle on this project. I have a friend that may be getting a powdercoater that I will be able to use. I will not be starting a different thread once I get this project started but I am busy for the most part so it may be awhile.

    Anyone can just buy it. They're the Paris Hiltons of the world.

    For you to build with the same quality including the powder coating you will be losing your butt to build it for them. But building it for ourselves, that's a whole nother story.

    As for the original poster, some of us just have to do it ourselves, it's a curse, a wonderful wonderful curse.

    Will this lead to a new build thread when you start on this Project?

    In my teens I built a few for Jeeps. I used at the time second hand un galvanized rigid steel conduit schedule 40, (5/32) mostly I used 3/4".

    You are not just cutting a 60˚ like on square stock since you need to make 2 cuts on each end of the tubing to make the fish mouth that fits snug against the other piece of tubing.

    If the jig on your bandsaw is adjustable to 45*, then set it to 25* and the other end of the cut ends up at 65*. 25*+65*=90*. Try it and see if that's the angle you want.
