    Default Tubing notcher

    Any body got a tubing notcher that they really like?
    I am looking for one and am leaning towards an Eastwood brand but I see less expensive ones on e-bay also.

    I got to go be on that Monster Garage TV show and the notcher they had was the slickest thing ever. Quick to set up super quick to make the cut, would change diameters in the blink of an eye and the quality of the cut was fantastic. If money were no issue this is the kind!!!

    check out protools.

    I have the basic model, but they have some new fancier one also.

    That's the easy way

    I didn't even know there was such a thing- VERY good to know.

    A lot of people like the JD2 notcher. I have used it at work and it was good.
    However I bought the protools notcher for my personal shop and I like it a little better than the JD2. Both are ov good quality, but the protools' angle vise is better made and uses a heavier back plate and a little larger shaft.
    I say go for the protools one, but either one would fit you just fine.
