That really just depends on what you're used to. I find metal easier to work with. I find it's easer to join two pieces of metal than two piece of wood. Also, minor gaps bewtween parts can be filled with weld, and be airtight. You can also hammer things into shape.
The only thing I find easier with wood is the cutting.
Been really busy so didn’t make a lot of progress over the last week. Started cutting and tacking together the frame. Using 2x2-1/8” square tubing and 3x2-1/8” for the tongue. I plan on using Jeep YJ springs, looks like removing a few leafs on a 5 leaf rear pack will be about right for my planned 1000-1100 GVW. Unfortunately it will be a week before my spring hangers get here.
I have that same Milwaukee chop saw. You have any problems with the button getting stuck? Not the button, but the internals. Button comes out, but the saw keeps going. I'm not setting off the button hold feature. The blade contact inside gets stuck.
Doing a great job so far, I will keep watching for more updates.:coffeedrink: Going to see where you go with this and then finish mine. All my extra funds are going for my upcoming trip to Tanzania for a month, so the trailer has to wait until my return! BUT by then yours will be done and I can get more great ideas!
