    Built one of these big pipe saws years back and it was a runner. Hopefully this one will be a runner too!

    Looks like a slip joint at the header DC for fine tuning ?

    I take it it's hydroformed, bloody nice job and I'm guessing not cheap to set up.

    The first header piece coming off the cylinder comes in 3 different lenghts for tuning. The slip joint about 7" down the header is for vibration. Keeps the header from cracking, so the pipe can be springed or welded there.

    Thanks Rick, I'll be running this one for the summer, but it could end up running in the STS next year.
