Dan - that joint intersection you are about to make is crucial, as I'm sure you know. If it were me I'd be adding some gussets, the area where the 2 tubes touch alone is not enough to get a strong weld...........best of luck


Edit: just reread what you've done - recessed one tube into the other. This may or may not work - have heard of a commercially available tadpole fail at this joint in recent times, similar configuration to yours. I'm most likely being over cautious, but personally I still prefer adding gussets, or indeed braces to further spread the loading.......
