    I think this is the first one I've seen that has a gap. Such a seemingly simple variation, but makes a world of difference when you intend to weld.

    I welded it all together and cut the gap on my band saw to ensure it was lined up perfect.
    Thanks for noticing my little jig gismo. :O)

    No wonder mine's skewed. Brain fart. Fabbed each side and welded them afterwards. Thanks for the tip capainleeward.
