I notice a few different frame stretch styles after going thru a few peoples build logs, some cut on an angle and weld together, others cut straight, and others cut straight and add a plate in the middle.

I’m new here but curious if you guys are just winging it with what works best for you? Or are you following someone else’s build instructions or?

Minijokerguy,

Preferred method is to angle cut the splice (@30 degrees to maximize the load bearing surface) and add reinforcement plates on either side, top and bottom with staggered plug welds.

One thing I often see in builds that require welding is the lack of the use of a weldable primer. Always a good practice to include some corrosion control when working with bare steel, especially when the back side could be partially encased, but still potentially susceptible to the elements.

Not sure if its the same thing but instead of weldable primer, cant one just use a rust/metal encapsulator? I have used these before when working on shipping containers, its can be used as a primer or as a encapsulator for areas that are already affected by damage and or current elements hitting the metal.

Also yeah the angle cut splice seems to be a favorite around here.
