So here’s a better shot of how I’m squaring up my inner side panels and leaving a lip for a recessed door. Our brake needs a setting adjusted on it and then I can form quarter-inch but for now I had to slit one side of the metal a little bit with a relief cut to allow the break to bend it.

That things a beast. You’re going to need to install a horizontal chair lift so you can get from one end to the other without getting winded.

Wow that is a beast of a thing. Here was I trying to find the best price for four sheets of 6mm plate for the start of the Mach and there's you using up more than that for the fire box... hahahaha... It is looking great Frank. You'll need an 18 wheeler to move that beast.
And a plasma table does take a lot of the hard graft out of cutting steel.


Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.
