room for a few f...

Cool. I won't be up there this week. I'm trying to pin down some work in DC and coordinate it

What about using round tube instead of solid bar? Something with a little thicker walls though.
And does it need to be stainless? Something with a high Rc (or Brinell if you prefer) and if
