Hi All,

Can anyone tell me if it would be ok to use 1.25" square tubing for the main frame components instead of the 1.5" tubing called for in the plan? Will it affect the strength very much?

1.25" tubing is easier for me to get so it would be great if it would work.

Thanks,

TeaJay

What is the wall thickness of the tubing? If it is less than 14 gage, then don't use it.

It's 16 gauge, so I guess I'll have to look around for the right size :-(

Thanks for you help.
