Tongue What do you think?

Well a few months I put my beginner (5 years) machining skills to good use. I got brave and built me a set of roller perches. Here are some pics.

Sorry not for sale. I finally decided to build myself a set after doing some research online. I work in a machine shop with a bunch of other car junkies who wanted to see if we could design our own set. We put C-clips on these in case we ever have to change out the oil impregated bushing. They roll quite easily. I wish I would have taked pictures of the progress but I got too excited and I forgot.

Who knows I might try doing another set!!
