You guys have seen all the metal work I've done. Well here are some of the tools I use to do that metal work.
Metal Cutting and Patching 006-4

Basic stuff but a few things that you need that will make cutting easier.

A Grinder with a cutting disk instead of a grinding disk.
You have to be careful they do come apart if you bind them up or it jumps and makes contact with an edge.
Metal Cutting and Patching 008-4

This one was not so scary, I have had them explode and half of it still on the grinder spinning. Be safe using this thing, gloves and a face shield is a must. Not to mention hearing protection.

I had one of those break one time and almost break my collar bone. There is a huge scar on my shield, Had I not been wearing it I would have had a nice scar or worse on my chin.
I use the same, except mmy sharpie is always missing.

I knew I was missing one tool out of my arsenal of METAL working tools. I need to get me one of those wood chisels.

I use that chisel more than the other. It is thinner and raises the spot weld up so I can see it and drill it out. Just keep it sharp and you're good.

I do use a metal scribe pencil. It leaves a good line to cut by.

Yep, looks like what I use.
Got the Rivi shell in today, man this thing is pretty nice, it's going to be a shame to cut it up to make a truck out of it...
