2×4 JMR Fabrication Table and Leg Kit

Friday, June 4th, 2010


JMR Manufacturing has been hard at working getting new tools ready for market.  The JMR fabrication tables have been a huge hit in many different industries and for the at home fabricator.  The tables can be purchased in various sizes and custom sizes also.  Standard sizes start at 2x4x3/8 and go up depending on your need. JMR can also manufacture thick table tops blanchard ground and add machined holes for the more serious fabricators.

The new leg kits are manufactured from CNC laser cut plate 3/16″ thick and then formed on a press brake.  Dimple Die flares are added for extra strength.  The feet do have pre-drilled holes for you to add levelers or casters depending on your need.  Leveling feet and casters can be sourced through JMR or purchased from your favorite hardware company.  They are not included with the table top or leg kit.

The introductory price for the 2x4x3/8 JMR fabrication table top is 595.00 plus freight.  The table in this form comes with (4) JMR legs, (1) pre-welded on base to the table, (1) table top, and hardware to bolt the legs to the table base.  Once received all you have to do is bolt the legs on and start fabricating.

JMR does offer angle block kits and clamp down kits.  Call for details.

Drilling Through Tube With the JMR TN1000

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

The JMR TN1000 Tube and Pipe Notcher is the most versatile hole saw notcher available.  We have been posting different tasks that can be accomplished with the JMR notcher.  Unlike notchers that are large, bulky, and clamp all the way around the tube the JMR notcher can be used on a vehicle or project.  What I mean is after tube is welded in place on your vehicle the JMR notcher can be clamped directly on the project to drill holes and even notch tube.  The following pictures show how you can use a 3/4″ hole saw to drill through tube to insert a weld in shock bung.  This can be VERY useful drilling in position to ensure shock mount locations are exact.

The JMR notcher can drill through square tube on the flats or on the diamond.  On the diamond refers to through the points.  Again a big advantage is the holes can be drilled in place after your project is welded together.

Notching Short Pieces Of Tube

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

The JMR TN1000 hole saw notcher has a movable vise which allows it to notch very short pieces of tube.  In the pictures you will see how the vise slides up close to the hole saw.  The JMR TN1000 is the ONLY hole saw notcher on the market with a movable vise.  JMR incorporated this design feature because the person designing the tool actually has practical fabrication experience and very little experience staring at an office wall.  Notching short sections of tube is only one feature the JMR TN1000 offers.

See more pictures of the JMR TN1000 HERE.

You can find the notcher in our ONLINE STORE HERE.

Another great feature the JMR TN1000 offers is the ability to notch flat bar.  You can read more about this feature and see pictures of the TN1000 in action by looking HERE.





OK, now you have seen the most logical way to notch a short piece of tube.  Now I will show you a way to notch tube even shorter.  The method pictured below is from years of experience in the shop fabricating race trucks not sitting on the internet reading about how others fabricate.  If you EVER have questions about how to use a JMR tool feel free to call or email.

If you would like to make the tool used in the JMR TN1000 below it is very simple to do.  Cut a 5 inch piece of tube that will slide over the tube you want to notch.  With a cut off wheel cut a slot down the length of the tube. Make sure to leave about 1/2 at the end of the slot.  In other words DO NOT cut all the way down.  The slot is cut in the tube to allow it to clamp down around the work piece. Make sure the 1/2 inch you left is at the opposite end from the piece you are notching.  Insert the short piece of tube you want to notch and clamp down in position.  The JMR vise will allow you to clamp down firmly to hold the short piece of notched tube.  If you have a different brand of notcher you can can still do this procedure.  Depending on the brand notcher you have you may have to use a radiator hose clamp out toward the end of the tube to help hold the tube.

JMR Tube Saws / Hole Saws

Thursday, February 25th, 2010


JMR offers a complete line of tube saws  / hole saws.  The JMR Tube Saws are threaded with a standard thread like other hole saws.  JMR hole saws are a perfect addition to the JMR Tube Notcher TN1000.

The JMR Hole Saws / Tube Saws were designed for notching tube. The extra length on the long tube saws allow you to cut high angle notches without the need to stop and break off the end of the tube. All JMR Tube Saws are fine tooth with more teeth per inch than conventional hole saws. The body of the JMR Tube Saw is heat treated after they are rolled and welded, giving them a harder tooth and a more true shape. The heat treated body has not coating to flake off and contaminate your weld area. The body of the JMR Tube saws are also thicker than conventional hole saws. The hole saws will thread onto any tube notcher.
