Tools for your mini chopper project

If there is one thing you need when building a mini chopper, it's tools. No matter what you want to do, a full toolbox is necessary, besides, tools are cool. Every guy that enjoys working with his hands gets a lot of pleasure from having the right tool for the job.

You don't have to spend a fortune, either. Look around a little and pick and choose. Once you get past the basics, a few specialized tools can make all the difference between a professional looking chopper and something that looks like it was put together in an hour by a six year old. Your chopper is you! It shows what you can do. Take your time and get the right tools to make the job easier and done right.

You can do it!

If you watch any of the chopper building shows on TV, bending and shaping metal is a must. Unless you're going to buy all of the parts pre-made, you're going to have to take some metal and make it look like the vision in your mind. Is it easy? No. Can you do it? Absolutely!

You don't have to create all of the parts but why not try a few? If those work out OK, try some more. You may find you have a knack for it. Matt Hotch, who's been winning all of those awards for his fantastic choppers, TAUGHT HIMSELF! He started in his garage and kept practicing until he got it right. There's no reason you can't do it too.
