I was thinking about doing an exo on my toy but I don’t have a bender. I have seen some with square tube and I didn’t think it looked bad. Although, I have seen some posts here that ragged on a guy for a square tube exo. Is there any reason not to use square tubing? Or is it just "one of those things"?

I would assume that since the round shape is stronger, that would be a good reason to go with it.

I am mostly posting to see what the responses are. I need a cage (endo or exo).

Its not weaker, it would be if it was the same thin-ness (it's a word NOW) BUT the only "real" downside is the weight, its going to be heavy!

Then of corse if it's build with no thought ....... your going to be in trouble either way :rolleyes:

It is weaker if you're not using a bender....bends are stronger than welds.

This could get long :D

It depends who welds it and what radius the bend is......

But a well thought out exo using threaded pipe fittings will be better than an ill concived exo using tube...........

Its all in the design :D .... lets leave it at that ;)

heh... I guess that would be one idea. I wish I could have been on some of the trips he was. Im not sure but I think it might have been the truck in the middle of all that tubing that made it ugly ! :D

Be carefull.... that rig now lives in your neighborhood and it may be waiting to stack on your rig some peacful night while your fast asleep.... :D
