I guess, but over $100 is enough for me. Like $10 materials, $5 powder coating. Time not an issue when you can't do anything else??

My business is slow because fall, pottery doesn't sell very good this time of year..

Valid points for sure. If you already have the equipment its a no brainer.

I'd built a few pairs, If they are going to have more than 1 bend in each side make sure you build a reversible jig, I must have bent each side 5 or 6 times to get both sides the exact same...even with them a tiny bit off they would feel really weird otherwise.

Thats were I am at. I can make more money in the time it takes to build them than its worth saving doing them myself. BR's website has tons of idea/options.
Hey Marc, I got some powdercoating I need done. $5 bucks for bars! I have a pile of other stuff aswell, should be only like about $25 bucks worth :)

You can make $150 an hour while sitting on the couch on that rainy Saturday? If so, damn straight I'd buy them..

Not sure my buddy would do that for everybody.. Send pics, I'll ask. [email protected],com

I have bent about 3000 feet of tube and I think a decent set of bars would take me a few hours to get right.


Now with a jig, it would be a whole different story.
