Could always do a human weight test. I wanted to see if a coffee table would support my 10g so I stood on it for a couple minutes like a stool while I attached hanging hooks in the ceiling. Go bug some of your friends :)

LOL yeah that is usually how it works out. But working with steel everyday (I am a welder) I would confidently say that it would hold a 75g up no problem as long as the joints were actually welded across and nut just "tacked". My guess is the thickness is prob around a 0.095 and having the tubing being 2 inches wide, that will hold up alot more weight than you would think.

We can use 2 - 1" welds 0.25" wide to safely hold "8500lbs" with a crane according to OSHA. Although alot of the time we lift 10000lbs+ with that.

Shhhhh!!!! I didnt say that. :)
