    Why did you choose galvanized steel? I was told by a few different pro welders that you never want to use galv tubing or sheet for fabrication/welding. They say it is not possible to remove all of the gasses and can not provide a good weld. The slag it produces is a white soot and will almost always produce a cold weld because the escaping gasses are considerable more than your sheilding gas.

    Not to mention welding galvanized steel releases zinc oxide fumes which are poisonous.
