Talking Welding projects pic thread.

A place to show off your welding and fabrication skills.

Post of pics and specs of your welding projects!




Ill start,

As I will soon be hauling an Oliver 1850 narrow front (weight 10K approx) I decided I needed a third ramp for my new trailer. I decided not to permanently attach it to my trailer as I don't anticipate using it very often.

I used 3" x 5/16" channel for the stringers and 2" x 1/4" angle for the crossmembers along with 3" x 1/4" angle on the ends. Its 22" wide and 6' 2" long. Although the angle iron on the end that sits on the trailer is 26" wide.

I find that a good coat of gloss black paint helps to hide my not so pretty welds!

I welded up a pig cooker recently with my buddy Mike, (who's in some pics.) The welding isn't as technical or precise as some of the previous posts but I figured it was different so why not? here are some pictures of the build:

Here's is the initial cutting of the 275 gallon oil drum.


Here's the lid all spot welded up with 1" flat stock around the edges.


Lid welded on with hinges.


here is one side with the air vents all welded up and hinges on.


Here it is all welded and attached to the trailer:


this is the fire we built in it to make sure all the oil was burnt out! think this was hot enough?


here's my buddy Mike putting the final paint job on it.


We had fun building it and it cooks a 100 pound hog in about 5 hours +/-.

1999 FL70 Bed Extension

This is a project we did for one of our short haul trucks at work. We can haul 30' pieces now with minimal over hang.

My dual Viair compressor bracket made to mount to spare tire xmember under bed. Spare don't fit so I removed the hoist and fabbed the bracket to bolt to existing holes. I'll post more pics when I finish the project.

Fish cleaning table.



Computerized plasma cut fire pits.
