Short lengths of I-Beam such as this are great for making heavy duty horses.
Weld a couple lengths of channel on and use angle iron for the base and you're good to go.
I have a couple that I use all the time for mounting a vice, a tubing roller, a pipe bender, etc. One is the same height as my welding table, which works great for larger pieces.
Not useless, but reallly doesn't have much "commercial" value. I get my beams out of my buddy's scrap dumpster (runs a large fab shop).
