another butt weld
« on: February 06, 2010, 12:00:32 AM »
JD mentioned in another thread that z-ed frames ( rectangular ) were also butt welded---i discovered this method way back hope it helps someone-----the first  Z is how i usually see it done --the second one i think is better it has more weld area --- both angles in both examples are the same---the tubing is 2 X 4 .120 wall  --------------well judge for yourself  --------willie buchta
