SJ, did you include all the variables? For sure you need lots of tube in case one messes up. I've never done that and never will again.:laugh3:

Then I added 10 more inches, & said "AT LEAST" this much! :)

The steel stockist I use only sells 3M lengths which means once I have finished a build, I usually have enough to start another! What a cool steel stockist, understanding the needs of the AZ krew so well eh?

Enjoy your build and have fun.

All the best.
