    Default Where do I start when it comes to fabing my own metal stuff?

    Alright title kinda explains it all. I want to start working with metals, not cnc, just stuff like making my own cages, skid plates, and stuff.

    Question one; Where can i get the tools to start fabing stuff?
    Question two; Where can i get the materials?

    Not sure how else to answer this, so there you go. There's also a ton of resources both here, and on the rest of Google and Youtube that can get you started.

    For metal bumpers and skid plate i use 22 gauge steel plate from home depot. Cut them with snipper tool. For cage or sliders i used 3:16 brakeline from autoparts store. You can also get map gas and benzomatic burner from home depot.

    Should have also probably asked, what tools do I need to get started?

    You can do a lot with a Dremel, tin snips, hammer and MAPS. I also have two pair of duck billed Vice-Grips for "forming".
    Not as complete as I'd like due to space considerations, (I have drilled and filed on my bed), but I've made little bits, and brackets
