I'd definitely go with the 7018 low hydrogen rod as it would offer a higher tensile strength! :wink:

P.S. It sure is fun trying to make a vertical bead look nice! DK

P.P.S. I kinda figured that there was a chemical interaction with the bolts and the doubling was out of necessity. DK

Well now that the smoke box face has been turned to the proper (again) O.D., the drilling of the bolt holes will commence on Monday and I am going to do the oddball bolt pattern, just to piss the "experts" off. I still am debating whether to to paint my G5 Tusacn Red or Brunswick green but that is still a few years away. Anybody want to take a shot at fabricating the cab?
