Cliff; I suggested 7018 'cause I can lay a really pretty bead with it - struggle w/ other rods.

Mike; important safety tip, a header flying free around the room does get pretty exciting!

Another thing you can do is cut the web completely out between the separate tube flanges then each tube can conform to the head separately. That would also put a lot less stress on the whole thing as things heat and cool, expanding and contracting.
