Anyone know where I can get one of these?

I have one but I'd rather hang on to it – a side of a table and a good heavy piece of wood or metal is a good substitute on the cheap.

I use the JK body cutting guide to cut and bend spoilers

I use the Harbor Freight hand-held brake. Works great for spoilers.

The advantage of the R-Geo is that it automatically does the maximum 1/2" for Retro.

Thanks men for the suggestions.

Yes Mike thats one reason I am looking for one.

The other reasons are its accurate, sharp, and easy to use.

Plus, I am in the I just want to build and race stage of my slot car career. So tools like this I like to buy and not fabricate.

Would love to find one.
