Down here 1 1/2 sqare 16gauge is like 4 bucks a foot. Alot cheaper and would give you a plenty strong frame

Lol I cant stop laughing at this because its so true in my household as well.
SWMBO: Are you sure that brewing is cheaper than buying your own?
Me: Yes sweetie! We save tons of money!!!!

I got a quite a nice pile of tube stock I took from the scrap pile at work. And there is a metal recycling place down the road that often has some standard sizes laying around.

Maybe you should see if you have a scarp yard to save some $$. The local place once had 2x4x1/8 from a surplus transaction. That scrapyard is like a box of chocolates </ForrestGump>
