Thinking of ordering some 2" square tubing to make longer rails for my 4511 front rail. The question is on what material to use. Steel would seem the logical choice but then I'd have to sand and paint it, and who knows how long the paint would stay put. I'm thinking about aluminum. Anyone forsee any problems with using 2" square aluminum for the purpose? The only thing I can think of is if the fence locking down on it too much would wear it enough to cause a problem. Doubt it, but don't know for sure. Anyone ever use aluminum for a replacement rail? The price difference really isn't that great between the two metals. I thought about stainless but it's really too expensive.
No announcement yet.
