Cut Down Gas Pipe

I partially fixed one of my pet peeves today. The shoulders sit just a little too far from the body. In order to fix this, I must cut 3/16" off of the end of each gas pipe that connects the legs.

Boy, how I missed hacksawing steel.

Now the shoulders will each sit exactly 1/2" from the body, and this will look much better (to me, at least).

I did not reattach the legs yet, as I still need to drill the holes I plugged yesterday. I plan to do that tomorrow. I will also drill new holes through the gas pipe, since the old 5/16" holes no longer align.
