  • hunting for info!

    Hey Guys,
    I need some help trying to find a thread. There was a new guy from Texas that had built a new weld trailer that was Miller Blue. It was a very well built trailer w/ a big work box on the front. If you are this person or you have any leads to this thread , please direct me there.
    Thanks, JWOOD

    Go to the search, type in welding trailer and any posts about trailers will come up. should narrow down the search a little. Dave

      I already did that several times and have not been able to locate the thread.
      I'm not having any luck. I'm not totally incompitent, but this is unfortunately a little harder than your usual search. This was his 1st post and was showing the trailer off and he was from Texas. I have done searches on all these and have not found it. If someone comes across it I would appreciate it.
      Thanks, JWOOD

            That might be my welding trailer project. If so, here is the link

            http://www.millermotorsports.com/mbo...ead.php?t=4545

            It was posted on the motorsports forum and not the welding projects. Perhaps that's why it doesn't show up on the search. I wish Miller would combine the two forums.

              That's one nice trailer! I love the recessed locks, I was wondering what those big holes in the toolbox were for 'till I saw the closeup pic!

                    Many thanks guys,

                    Gary do you still have copies of the cad drawings / calcs? would be interested in seeing them.

                    After using the trailer for a while how are you finding it now?
                    I am especially interested in the toolbox on the front as i do lots of sitework and need to make 5 strong boxes for storing gear on my current job. We got a big problem with security on this site they're even stripping the pipe out of the racks!

                    Great Job on it by the way real quality outfit - well done!

                      The trailer is working out pretty good. It tows nice, but with the time I spent calculating the center of gravity before I built it, I expected nothing less.

                      The tool box is home made, 14ga for the sides and 1/8" for the top with a 1/4" lid lip and 1x1x1/8" top lip inside the box. Hand blending the outside corner edges with diamond plate was a bit tricky, but it ended up looking pretty good. I made it bigger than I thought I would need and that turned out to be the right choice. I have it pretty well stuffed, but I don't have to go looking for tools when I go out to weld something. The gas springs for the lid were provided by a company that does the placement/sizing calculations for free. That detail is in the original post as is my contact info for cad/calcuation files.

                      The locks setup on the front of the box is a pretty standard setup for strong boxes. The only way you can get in is to pick the locks or use a cutting torch. If you need more detailed pics, send me an email which is available in the original post.



                      Thanks for all the kind comments.
