        I borrowed the step from the guy I made it for to get some better pics. He's actually been using it and scratched it up and messed up the dodge emblem I might repolish it and fix the ram before i give it back to him.

          littlefuzz, personally I'd redo it for him since he let you borrow it again. Up to you

            1-5 hrs.

            Bert, this project took between 4-4 1/2 hrs start to finish. I entered this project because of the time factor and that the weekend hobby builder can easily make this same item with out any fancy or specialized tools and the ease of gathering materials.
            The whole project was done with scrap materials, the square tube for the frame was some legs for an old metal desk, the flat bar was just some left over drop material, same with the expanded metal on the base. The removable handle was from an old sign bracket that was on my building when I moved in, and the little u-shaped pieces on the front of it were old u-bolts from trailer axles. The dolly was primed and painted using rust-oleum enamel. I did buy the casters for it at about 2 bucks each at Lowes. This whole project can be made for about 30 dollars out of pocket expense. Dave

              Creativity

              Well, at least you have the "creativity" and know-how to do something with THAT much scrap and make into something VERY cool looking and useable!
              I don't like it when people say "oh common, it's common sense", common sense is different to many people. Like you mentioned before, some things are easy for some people, some aren't but THEY have other talents!!!
              My talent is stealing yours and others ideas (thanks to Cat's and others artwork ) Well, good going...and hope you win your MM212!!!

                The ss step only took a couple of hours, the polishing and cutting that ram took longer than the step itself. By the time it was done it was pushing 5hrs
