    not sure how much lighter it is, but it is a lot cooler than a plastic one.

    I dunno that i'd want it in that shape...but if you could make a contoured one like the optrel satelite i'd be all over that. I weld in tight spaces far too often to use one of those...
    Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.
