    Sean, Did you ever try to build with the ssf-6? At 70,000psi seems like it would be strong enough for a frame. I can't find anyone who has built with it.

    Yeah, but it works just fine. 34% works well on butt joints.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    I don't think you're looking at the same stuff we're talking about.
