I found these

Hmmm something is fishy with the link. It is 6' lengths of 1x1 aluminum tubing that has 1/16" wall thickness. It is made of T52 tempered aluminum I think.


I was wondering if this tubing would be strong enough to make a frame for a deck. It is thin walled but it is tubing rather than angle. It is $9.98/6' length. I was also wondering as far as price how does this compare? I am looking to buy tubing from the same site for the livewell. I ordered tubing and connectors from them years ago when watercooling my computer of all things.

That should work just fine. I used wood to build mine, but a buddy used a similar aluminum and it worked great
