Lay the spacer tube on top of the press plate, align the sides and make the back edge flush.
Insure all edges are tight and squared; this piece is critical, it must be a uniform height throughout the entire item. Grind off any imperfections.
Tack weld the two together in many places (at least 3 on each seam).
Double check everything for squareness!!
Weld the two together on all edges where they touch
It is a good idea to weld in 1” or 2” increments, skipping around to different places to prevent warpage. You will need to weld multiple layers where the tubing is rounded.
