Good Evening All;
I have a specific question regarding the "Reinforcing Tie Rod" question.
I know the "slip a metal tube over the tie rod and welding the ends" part. The problem is, and I ensure you I searched: What type of metal tubing do you slip over the tie rod? Nobody has ever gotten into details about that part...
I know if you put too hard of a metal over the Tie Rod you can break the Tie Rod if a "bolder jumps in front of you" - like happened to me :whistling:
I know having a bent tie rod is better then a broken tie rod for sure!
Do I go and get a nice soft pipe like "black pipe?" Perhaps I am just over analyzing this?
Any suggestions are welcome! Any "flames" are not so welcome, but I know I my deserve them :hide:
As always, I look forward to hearing from y'all.
Thanks for your time.
