Thumbs up Re: pic: 662's New Coffee Table!?!

Looks Good Guys, We are also building a "Double Decker" frame about 12'' high. We are using aluminum. Curious why steel?

Re: pic: 662's New Coffee Table!?!

I have often debated about using steal in a drivetrain. Would the wieght-to-strength ratio be better then alluminum if you used 1/32" wall?

What wall thickness are you using?

Re: pic: 662's New Coffee Table!?!

The steel is 1/16. Usually we would cut 4x4" box aluminum into c-channel, however, with the price of aluminum soaring, we couldn't find any. After comparing a custom built frame using the kitbot aluminum and the steal, this was only 4 pounds heavier.

also, we do not know anyone who can weld aluminum, so that also influenced the decision.


Oh, btw, the frame is upside-down for all those who haven't figured that out already =).

(tears up)

It's just so beautiful!

We've been underweight in the past with aluminum frames, adding steel plates at the end just to make up for the weight leftover. With a steel frame like this I don't think we'll have to worry about being underweight...
