The cutting & drilling issue is why I don't like the bed frame angle, but I do have a cutting torch. The armored car shop finally had to cover their dumpster because of the scavengers. One night I was looking for some steel plate to mount some dock bumpers on a truck, found the perfect pieces over there, right size, rounded corners, smooth edges, just right! And then I tried to drill some holes in them it was hardened steel, drill bit wouldn't touch it, had to torch out the holes!

I've read (on another forum) that you can drill bed frame if you first heat the spot with a propane torch for about 30 seconds to de-temper it.

Good points, but it is strong, cheap, and it welds real nice!
