If I understand correctly, the HSS will butt together at an angle. For straight butt joints, I have seen fabricators profile cut a plate to fit within the tubes at the joint to make a backer bar. But this won't work at an angled butt joint without a lot of fit up grinding. In your case, I would think it easiest to put a plate at the seam and fillet weld both tubes to the plate. Will a plate extending beyond the surface of the tube be acceptable?

I am considering using a tube steel section to create a “bent” for a hip roof that I can’t tie horizontally. The roof is a 20’ x 16’ hip roof with heavy tile loads and someone thought it would be nice to have a 5’ square skylight centered in middle. I would put two of these frames on either side of the skylight in the short direction and then bear the wood framing on them. I am trying to use a 7” section, so I think a tube might work the best.
My question is regarding the welded connections, since you can’t access both sides, how is the best way to weld the butt ends of a tube steel section together? I can use tabs if I have to, but I have had this question with similar situations, so I thought I would ask.
