I got an update on the inspection. He does not work weekends, so it will get done on Monday. I miss my bus.
Education on steel. The labels may be wrong.
Across the street from me is a welding and fabrication shop. They sell steel for a good price, the lowest in the area. On shelves in the shop they have examples of what you can get. I was looking for Rectangle tubing that 1 1/4" square tubing would fit in. I found a piece that worked good with a little wiggle room to work with. 2" x 1 1/2" x 1/8" or 11 ga. I should have done the math because when you take in account the 1/8" wall size you have 1 1/4" with no room to wiggle.
Well I got my pieces today and they don't fit, go figure. I went back and measured the piece they had and the wall measures about .080" or 14 ga. When I complained they said they are there for the outside dimensions. I said "But you list the wall thickness." I guess it is up to us to know what we are doing. Now I have $35.00 dollars of steel I can't use. I will have to figure something down the road to build to use it up.
The 2" x 1 1/2" x 14 ga has to be ordered and wont be in until around Friday.
Hopefully it will work and I can get started on my roof raise.
