Well 23ft of welds later and you get this
I'm tired and done for the day.
Every weld has multiple passes, little stacks of coins knocked over is good for piggy banks not a structural integrity. I did a test weld with a extra piece a few feet long and put a spring scale on it and maxed it out then tried to put my body weight on it and no failure and the bar didn't twist either so were good. Hopefully Vinny can make it up this weekend. They're calling for more of the white stuff. All for now.
