I gotta wake up - must be bad timing or my lack of awareness my part - I missed the updates - but you're on your way.  This is progress!  If you took a welding lesson from Willie, you'll have no troubles.

Nice job Geo. Your tubing fits are really nice. cheers cheers cheers

Just a hint when you're doing your jungle gym act. Put in ear plugs. There's nothing like a little bit of weld spatter bouncing around on your ear drum while your head bounces off various tubes as you try to escape. Most of us who have welded for any length of time have experienced the effect. shocked shocked shocked

Thanks Peter Jack.

Tube fitment is only part of the equation.  Some recent threads about roll cages reminded me of the placement of tubes.  A good thread started by Willie is located:,4846.0.html

Heading is:  material tubing thickness

One other part of the equation is the joint angle meeting point as shown in this photo.

Very cool build!

It's looking good- I can't wait for the updates! Good luck.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925
