When I built my cage I would clamp the tube in the notcher so it wouldn't cut enough of the end to make a knife edge. There were those times however when I would have to notch a second time for fit. Then I would cut the sharp edges back with the band saw.

Just one example. If your making a kitchen table or a picture frame then who cares. If someone making structural products like cages or motorcycle frames etc, don't do a good job they are going to get sued eventually. May even kill someone. Not a place to be cutting corners. .o2Dynasty 200 DX

Big Bear Chopper
I really hope he walked away. I hope that BBC is doing something about the crap they sold him. At the very least brought it to their attention that the guy doing their welding has screwed up.

i just don't understand how some one could weld on some thing like that if they did not know what they were doing ?? its not like they were saving time or $$, they just did a sh ity job. if you are not going to, or able to do it right, just don't do it. no matter what the $$$. some jobs just should not be done if you don't have the skill to do it right.thanks for the help
hope i helped
