Banzai, I worked with that material a ways back in my house when I replaced a window. I couldn't convince the wife that 1/8" strapping would make just as good trim as wood molding...

Default Metal Kiln Shed

Now-now I have had to resort to using metal at times. Here's a picture of an all metal kiln shed. Designed and built in place using doubled up metal studs for framing. Not a stick of wood in the place. Even used a cutoff blade in my miter saw to cut the studs.

You guys can be harder to find than a swarm of bees settin' up a new nest.
I got lucky and got a private invitation to come over here....by somebody called "The Welding Nazi" or something like that.

Welcome aboard, Stovepoker. We sure don't mean to be hard to find; I think everyone who came here on the first ship tried to write home to everyone we could before the iron curtain got slammed on pmails & other communication. Without even a membership list it was just a losing battle.
So of course, contact anyone you can & bring them along.

Of course, he's usually worth waitin for cause he makes some damn good eldeberry wine that'll cure damn near any disease known to mankind, or make ya not give a dam yer feelin poorly.

Well, to tell the truth I've made a career out of bein' hard to find.
But I really do enjoy the daily dukeouts in this family, and there's a lot
more to be learned here than on corporate tv. Regarding the eldiberry
juice, I didn't really learn to weld until I learned proper eye focus by
internal means. Them cheap plastic helmet magnifiers jest don't do the
same job.
