Hi! I'm bumping this thread to get some input on some possibilities I found.
Candidate #1: 3/4" x 1/16" aluminum tubing. Feels too light probably not a good idea. How strong is this stuff?
Candidate #2: 3/4" x 1/16" steel welding tube. I do not know how strong/brittle this type of steel is. Anybody familiar with it?
Candidate #3: Solid 3/4" steel rod. A bit heavy but I have no doubt it will take the load.
So if anybody with a little practical metallurgy experience could give me some feedback here I would appreciate it!
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!
I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
