k i think thats what ill do! i tried to do the stress test, couldnt make it work, it didnt have enough material data to run an analysis with pine. did find out that itll way 107.7 lbs tho! so that middle sections gotta go.
UHMW? first time ive heard of this. All ive heard of was high density poly ethylene. But whats UHMW and where can i get it!?
please tell me its cheaper than HDPE
