    Great thread! I like the laser alignment for the tubing bender. Where did you get the aluminum extrusions? Keep the pics coming!

    hello Designit then all materials I buy from a scrap yard in my town nörrkoping sweden .
    it was an industrial machine.and I took some parts that I need to build my tools.
    but you can find them on internet in your country or you can go to companies who build aluminum doors, windows, frames and industrial machines.
    or like my go to scrap yard :D you will find there every thing that you need to build your tools very very cheap :D
    you only need little imagination on the place, to see what you need for your needs :arrow:
    kindly Valy
