Little buggers were right there in a piece of tubing weren't they ?  Looks great (as always) Bob
Yes they were and interestingly enough, the tube is the same, or close enough, diameter as the grinder wheel on the grinder my neighbor gave me when he moved.  grin

You have nicer neighbors than do I....A hole saw works great on those and when located properly, You end up with matching left/right pcs.  Carry on

Jerry, he gave me a drill press and a bunch of other stuff as well... he was running out of space in the place he was moving to.  Of course his son questioned giving all that stuff away but he told him if he gave it to me he could just come to my shop if he needed to use it.  I do a little welding and make a few farm parts as well as repairing tractors and combines around the neighborhood.  It is all done on the barter system... it is handy too have a backhoe, dump truck, tractor with a blade and bucket and an unlimited supply of manure for the garden when the barn gets mucked out.  I have several good neighbors....  grin

I used a hole saw on the end caps, but the largest I have is 5 inches.... and it needs a bit of massage to fit the 5.56 tube.  That hole saw is not deep enough to cut through tube. I cut it with the band saw and used the grinder to make it better.  But I know where to look for a thousand future brackets I'm going to need before this deal is done.

Stainless, if you need another source for brackets, try AA Manufacturing.
