6061 does age harden, but you are getting cracks along the weld seam, so I
think it is more an issue of a bad lot and not so much aging.
Agreed. It looks like your supplier got rid of the stuff he found in the back of the shed.

I guess I'm lucky down here as with the differing manf's that use Al in large qty's, I have had no problems getting any alloy properties I need.

6063 is a common variety in my neck of the woods. FWIW, I use the same suppliers as NG when necessary.

A local supplier helps me out with the drop shipping to his place. He usually gets a bit as well considering cost.
God, if you would grant me one request through Prayer, please help me be the Man my Dog thinks I am. Please.

I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!
