This is my first post here so I am sorry if this is in the wrong place!
I am looking to build a bike repair stand out of mild box steel. I think I need to make it out of 40x40x3mm box steel.
If I have done my calculations correctly I think a 1.6M length can hold 20.96kg.
I have drawn a very rudimentary sketch of the product on my iPad, to demonstrate the lengths etc.
Generally speaking a Full world cup DH bike is around 17.7kg, this stand won't be holding more than that so I would say that is the weight it needs to hold.
I would really appreciate if someone could help me work out if the piece was mig welded together would the product hold the bike?
