Nice! How'd you manage to talk the school into letting you use their equipment? That's fantastic!

@j_snake ....very inventive and......being able to utilize the local school's equipment is great. I think all schools should be available for the tax paying public...but thats a political issue!:) an looking forward to your build
and put the "brakes on" often!:)

It was at an applied technology center it was where I took my plumbing classes
I already had all the dxf made up and talked to the teacher and he just made sure I did it right and anytime I need to make more he said to come on in
And today I have drilled most my brackets and should have the rest done tomorrow hopefully
