Default Weekend Brutus!

I finally got most of the materials to start building my single tier Brutus 10! I have been collecting the parts and tools for about a year now. I'm gonna post pictures of my process for anybody interested. Cheers!

It's dimensions are, 28" tall, 48" long, 12" between tubes on top. Every short cut tube is 12" long, 10 total. I cut all of the metal on a band saw at school, filed the inside ends and then hit them with a flap disk on the angle grinder. I then used simple green cleaner to degrease it before welding. The welder is the 90 amp flux wire welder from harbor freight. If you decide to use it, make sure you buy a roll of Lincoln or miller .035 flux wire, 12 bucks at home Depot. Yeah its 40 feet of 2" mild steel strong as hell!

Do you have any close ups of your welds? I just picked up the same welder from harbor freight but have not used it yet.
