Can you weld stainless? Do you have a tube notcher? And some seriously hard hole saws to cut them? Round tubing is mighty strong, but in case of stainless hard to work with.
I decided that I’d like to have more tools and develop the skills to use them, but now was not the time.
By the way, Harbor Freight is REALLY not the place to get your solar panels.
