    On your table, it looks like the casters are tacked on??

    yes, I wasn't sure how the pneumatic tires would work.....? so I tacked then for the trial period, they only lasted a week. I have since swapped them out for some solid ones! Much...much better!!!!!

    I like your Jeep tube doors and rockers. Want to fab some doors and tube fenders when I'm done building my tube bender. Here's a pic of my rockers and bumper:

    Those LED "rocklights" are a cool idea.

    How about a little more info on this tubing bender you mentioned. I would like to see your plans. PM me if you would like, I don't want to high jack this post.

    I got them here: http://www.roundeyes.com/Products-LED_Lighting.html
    I mounted them differently than they are designed. I beat the mounting panel/tab flat, drilled holes and a countersink (to allow for light dispersion) for the light and mounting holes and riveted them in place. It was a real bugger fishing them up to the ends of the bumper and holding them in place while I set the rivets.

    My bender is a real "Off the Wall" design. I wanted a powered bender but didn't want to spend the big bucks for hydraulics, so I'm building it to be powered by my winch! I have a concept drawing in my photobucket account:

    Using a winch cable to operate a tube bender!

    Scary.
