Sheet Metal Hookup

Postby markmywords38 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 7:28 am

Hope everyone had a Happy New Year. This month I am going to build my board and know where to get my materials with the exception of the metal field. Any recommendations to get the sheet metal here for a reasonable price?

I usually use 24GA galvanized. Give them your dimensions and they will cut it for you.

Ok that will work. Just match your counterweights to the thicker metal.

They usually tell you they have a cut variance of plus or minus 1/4". Hopefully you have not built the frame yet.

Ok wait until you get your metal then the wood can be cut to size.
