  • More bumpers from the Boise City Ag Shop

    We seem to build bumpers. Attached are a few pictures of a couple recently completed.

    I think the picture links take you to a web album, so you can see more pictures of projects and FFA activities at Boise City.

      Like the bumpers...

      I like the bumpers. They look pretty good. Not to be a buzz kill, but where are the respirators and goggles when you are painting? tisk tisk.

          Very good point. This is the first painting we have done that was not from a rattle can. We will painting a couple of projects today, so, out will come the masks.

            Detail work comes from making mistakes and learning from them and getting more and more sophisticated in design and execution. Still, big beefy bumpers for the testosterone laced teenager. Can I hear a grunt?

                Wow Paul - that looks pretty beefy. We are looking at this in class. My boys want to know what you are going to hit with it? And is it completed?

                    Yes it is complete, I did show the before picture. It now has a serious bow in the lower edge. I killed a 2007 Honda Accord, $18000 damage to it a zero to the truck but a bend in the bumper,,,acceptable I think!

                    The facing surfaces are made of 6061-1/4" aluminum checker plate and the substructure and mounts are made of 6061-1/2" aluminum plate. It is mounted with 3/4" bolts. It weighs in at about 150 lbs. When I first built it it was finished with a fine grain brass wire brush which gave a nice flat finish and showed off the welding of course.

                    Thanks for the compliments, and your shop students are doing very well.

                    Peace,
                    Paul
