Bars were smooth, straight and well made
Very detailed plans, easy to follow! And also, best customer service ever. Thanks!!!
These plans are a very good design, easy to follow. But why-oh-why when you post international do you not have a metric option??? The entire rest of the world (apart from Liberia) is metric. We don't work with antiquated units like 3/16 of an inch or the length of a parson's nose. Please make a metric version for non-US and non-Liberia buyers.
Only complaint was the blue print was too small. Some of the numbers on the angles are too hard to read. Obtaining the plans, customer service, etc, was wonderful!
