    I figger the Rod used for the Tools is 1/2" could be 5/8"
    I just went and measured our tools and they are out of 5/16 rod...and they've always seemed pretty stout.

    a great first project for your ring roller is to roll a ring for the handle's.
    the fancy big $ ones come with a wheel for a handle and once you start using it you will see why.
    i used 5/8" all thread. i had a piece out back collecting rust so it was a good choice. it also gives great grip.
    you will find the roller much nicer and easy-er to use after you add a ring.

    as for the plasma cutter, man are they fun. you may at first find yourself cutting up more stuff than you should be, luckily you have a welder and can quickly fix it to hide this lose of control from the wife.

    a 4.5" grinder and some flap disks will be a welcome addition that will get used more than all the others. well worth the investment.

    Ok- then use 5/16

    I am going to stop GUESSING at the size since folks seem to take the GUESSING part of the GUESSING request about the size material used on the would(sic) rack for actual measurements.

    way more than he thought he would, and no where near all he will.

    it just keeps adding up, but boy is it fun.

    How'd you get a $1500 stimulus check?

    I spent over $40K on my business last year and I only got $300.

    Hey, those were good guesses 3/8 by 1 1/2 looks right on those uprights...just seemed huge to me.

    Yeah, I spent $1500 on the free welder, and about $1000 on steel so far and then there's the bender and ring roller and clamps, and grinder, well ya'll know what I mean I could use another economic stimulus payment.

    Why I got $1500, don't know. The letter said $1200 for Filing status and $300 for qualifying children (one). It also said I don't need to report this as income in 2008
