Hi everyone. I just completed my tubing notcher. There was allot of machining and milling involved but the over all cost was less than $50. There are many good store bought ones out there but for the amount of pipe work I do I couldn't justify the cost of purchasing one so I'm hoping I can get by with this one. I just made the first cut with it and it worked perfectly.
The main block has self lubricating bronze bushings so I think it should last for awhile but to be safe I put an oil hole in the top as well for added lubrication. One thing about making your own tools is if they break you can repair them easily. Here's a few pics of the completed task. Hope you all have a great day. Paul
