After it cools off I'll see how straight it is for ya. I did nothing to counter distortion. and really doesn't matter much due to the length. Boss said to use angle cause last time he didn't bite on tubing cause of the price of tubing. I didn't the price this time either. He was smilling last I saw when I told him it was still hot.
Used an old victor powered torch to cut the bevel, then flat gound a tish with 9 in grinder. Ran into some bubbly stuff in three spots so had to grind that out and reweld. For the next group of photos in this project will start a new thread.

Its two angles welded together and surprizingly enough they almost straighten themselves. I thought the first one would bow all over but it didn't. I mean I start at the same end and weld to the end, flip weld to the end, flip last pass to the end, and flip the last time and weld to the end, only stopping to change leathers and gloves.

Actually the whole angle had a slight bow to from the beginning. When I left the Boss didn't mention it being bowed. He has micrometer eyes and a mini camera in his head. But I'm going to string it Monday. 1/4 inch bow in 10 feet either way is negligable in this purpose.

Good job Steve. I don't think that I've ever used angle iron that didn't have a bow in it. Granted, I've not used 8 x 8 x 3/4 angle.Jim

Thanks Jim-TX. Anybody got a slant on the settings of the MP65E I used?
