You couldn't get the angle without deforming the tube plastically and that weakens it.

Plus these are mild steel and relatively thin wall (in welding terms). MIG welding them together SHOULD get enough pentration, and could be enhanced if a slight chamfer is given to the butts. We ued to weld box tubing like this all the tim in the mine in worked at, for structural members and never had an issue. Some of the test tooling, for wheel end simulation, at my current place of emplyment is made the same way and it holds up to HUGE lods. I don't think you have a thing to worry about.

Chanfering the butts prior to welding will proivide more than adiquate penetration.

Steve, without trying to sound like a pervert, will the butt joints be camferred? I sure don't want any worries after buying these, trucking them to my muffler shop, having him weld them on, and then wondering if there are going to be problems down the road.

BTW, thanks to fastcougar, Josh, and Stazi for their valuable input.

that would be by me. i just received your payment this morning and only checked the bottom of the list to see if you had just added yourself to it. i didnt look near the top where you had previously put your name and "paid"

edit: i just realized you had paid with an e-check which just cleared and i received an email saying you had now paid

I hope that helps.
