They are scrap metal. But they did make it convenient to mock up the 2x3 stock.

Here's a few more project photos. No shots of bending the tube, it was done with a JD Squared Model 3 bender using a 4.5" radius die.
Cutting the round tube required a simple setup on the saw, except using it in the vertical position now. I've found this to be a foolproof (hey, it works for me) method of making the cut exactly parallel to the outside of the tube.
Thanks for looking,
Mike

Next up is cutting the tube spacers & notching them to fit the 1 1/2 tube. I keep all up my short pieces for this purpose. They were notched using a notcher I got from the inventor, a guy named George Barnes about 25 years ago. Shortly after they came out they were copied.
Thanks,
Mike

The last set. I used coarse anti slip tape made by Wooster, got the 1" wide by 60" long roll.
This tape is polyurethane backed instead of paper and I believe it will be more durable. I used a hard rubber roller made for laminate application to apply it. I don't think there's another way apply enough pressure to this stuff. Also never leave a square corner on a tape like this, it'll be the first spot where it comes loose.
Thanks for looking,
Mike
