My neighbor has a scrap metal side hustle and I happened to look over today and he has a trailer full of 1.5" x 1.5" aluminum extrusions that are 10ft long each. Long story short, he said I could have all I want and I told him I would give him whatever he gets at the scrap yard for them. After a little back and forth I got him to agree to let me pay him for them. He gets $0.42/lb for aluminum so I think I just hit a jackpot for sure. He said the place he gets them from has all kinds of sizes up to 4"x 4" all the time. At that price I can’t see NOT making a bed for the XXL!
Anyone built one and have tips / measurements needed handy they could share?
Thanks for the link! I am not looking to make them to sell, just have been eyeing a couple but could not justify the price tag for a hobby machine. But at the price he is giving them to me for, not making one for myself would be a shame.
