Made the control stick mounting brackets by measuring out the size on the plans and cutting them out on the band saw. I prefer cutting oversize and shaping after bending. I find it difficult to cut metal exactly to size and then bend. After bending I marked and cut the angled sides and evened everything out on the belt sander. I marked the tubing cut out then used the angle grinder to rough cut, then cleaned up with the 1/2″ belt sander.
