Why are you using 1/8", or is this some type of a skin over thicker wall tube?
1/8" is all i really need. I dont plan on running in to sh!t. All it really needs to do is hold my fairlead.

Yeah, it started as a 3x7 sheet. So far i like the 4.5" angle grinder the best. Im able to make the cuts fairly straight and its faster than my old circular saw.
