    This phrase struck a chord with me. Around here pretty much all the trades are looking for good help. There just
    aren't enough "hands-on" people around to fill the need. We're a small shop--just...

    First question is: Are the holes already cut? If you have a choice water-jet will cut the holes without leaving
    a HAZ (Heat Affected Zone). Annealing probably won't help much. Mild steel doesn't...

    Pretty much my take too. If they come in sets they're not likely to be very good. Just seems to be the nature of
    the beast. Buy them individually as you need them. If you look around you'll see...

    This.

    You should be able to weld 14 GA or heavier all day long with 3/32 6013 or 7014. As the material gets a
    bit lighter you need to move a little faster. Learn to weld properly and you'll...

    Yeah, buying parts from the OEM based on numbers alone can be a crapshoot. Even if they get them
    right chances are you'll pay way more than you would for generic parts. Just disassemble the...

    Up to 12' should be pretty easy to find. Probably more difficult to find someone with dies that will give
    you that radius. Other than that it's a pretty simple job.

    It's definitely not a stock shape but there could well be places making it as a custom extrusion. You say you need
    20 footers but what is your actual cut length? If you're at 12 ft. or less it...

    A needle gun will make short work of most spatter. But I also agree with the idea of reducing the amount of
    spatter when welding. Anti-spatter spray and attention to good setup/technique will...

    I dunno. Ask Adam Booth and Keith Fenner, two of the fastest guys on 4-jaw chucks that I've ever seen. Neither
