Pickup about 1/2 the steel today.
4"x6"x3/16" tubing, 4"x3"x3/16" tubing , 2 1/2" x 2/12" x 1/4" tubing , 3" x 3" x 1/4" angle, 1" x 1" x 1/4" angle.
That and the rest I got was right at 8,000 lbs of steel.

That sounds like the right steel to start with. Make it stout as you go and never be sorry! A little extra iron is good investment . Mills take a lot of strain, and need to be strong.
sounds like you might be starting to cut and weld soon! Take pix. as you go! thanks; sonny
