Brian:

I would be concerned about the erector "burning thru" the 1/4" material. Can you use a 3/8" wall tube instead?

If I have a 7/8" diameter stud on a 1/4" walled tube (stud diameter >
2.5 x flange thickness) do I have to use the properties for a bare beam?
Do I use the equivalent smaller stud diameter for analysis that will
meet this criteria?
