Home Made Projects or tools

I thought i saw it in a string here but can not find now. i thread of home made projects or tools I almost trusting my welding so i want to do some things on a bigger level. i been looking at hose hangers and reels for awhile and decided it would be a good self project. i found some scrap 1"X1" tube. i made this holder it has a foot level with the ground (i thinking of removing the decor rock so i went to true groound so i would not have to fix later)

this is with a 75' hose on it. it will hold 200' worth.

This has welded caps on the top of the tubes. this went better than i thought so ---project 2 a extension cord and air hose holder. this was out of some scrap too. i wish the back was talller to allow more space between rows but it works fine. the front stops are not straight but as a welding project it was good too.

lets see some of the tools and or projects that been made to make our lives easier........mike

Well I have no skills yet to do anything like that. My Welding Engineer friend though is another story. You got to admire a guy that can weld like this.

I made my welding cart from a design template found off one of the welding sites. Went down and bought some 1x1 1/8th inch stuff, welded the frame together, bought the wheels from harbor freight for about $6, used scrap plywood, and an old tennis racket for the handle:

nope I wouldnt. I stand by my statments of using tube to build anything, pipe belongs elsewhere.

no really all i use is tube for truck stuff so thats whats laying around and what my bender dies are for so.......

fyi I was going to build that thing out of chromo but figured it was a little overkill :goodfigne

Now, I don't want to start an arguement here, but IMO I think pipe would work just fine for a stereo stand. At least with my system. I only have a few hundred watt system and the stresses involved are minimul, actually even if you have a top of the line system, for what we actually use them for.... I still can't believe Blown got all huffy like he did.

Why wouldn't pipe work for that stereo stand? I think I have a bunch left over from my rollcage and steering link projects, so I may just whip one up.

My wife collects baskets. Long old booger or something like that. They're spendy but she always reminds me I don't have room to talk with my Bronco habit. She's right. And what the hell they little things are decorative.

I went to three auto parts stores today to get a ball joint spanner socket and not one of them had one. I know HF has them but they are to far away for just that. I got home and sacrificed an old cheap socket and made my own. It's ugly as ugly gets but it got the jop done.


Bronco is sold to another member but the memory will live on.
I still come here to keep up with wheeling buddies and check out their rides.
