Yep you are right. I did ask for thoughts but are you telling me that you would not be alittle bit upset with this kind of response? You could have approached the subject in a different way that would have made it easier for us to have a conversation about our views. I have already looked at some of your designs before I started this project and had planned on contacting you for some input for future steps in my build. but with a snarky response like that right out of the gate its apparent that further input would not be constructive. Thanks. Can we move on now?

This is a much better approach. Other than "safety", what are some more reasons to use pipe over the bar?

Black pips is rated for gas material, thickness ect square tubing is not, could have a thin weld and a little time could have a leak later on rust ect.

I decided to go with black iron because I doubted my ability to make leak free welds. I do like the clean and tidy look of the lonnie style gas bar, what are the the safety concerns other than leaks?

Op I think your stand looks great so far, it would be a little too tall for me but I'm a short guy

Tidy...it's right at chest high. A few more inches and it would be too tall but it's just about where I want it.

One thing I want to point out: Black Iron Pipe these days is usually just black painted steel - it's come to be recoined as Black Steel Pipe but it's still being sold as Black Iron. So it will rust too. Some are not even seamless - you have to be careful. I'm not saying I'm advocating one way over another - I myself use Black pipe just because I vented my frame. I just think don't think many know about this little misnomer.
