    I realy love the way you reused the old street signs. Every time I see something original from somone I try to scrutinize every last inch of it that I can for possible ideas.

    Thanks for the compliment! I do the the same exact thing you listed above. This is what I Love About Welding and All Metal Work! So many routes to choose when making something!

    Street signs are pretty cheap! Two to four bolts and they're yours, cough, cough..., ah'em, I mean two to four bucks and they're yours$$$ No really I work for a highway construction outfit and signs are readily available. Too much damage on them and they cannot be used, I grab the best damaged ones before they are thrown into the recycling bin.

    I have used signs to make motorcycle parts, designs and such. They shine up real good with rouge, pedestal polisher and some elbow grease, lots of elbow grease. Though I did learn real quickly "when polishing wear thick welding gloves and hold on with a death grip" after ducking "shiny" aluminum projects flying at my head at 300mph and suffering 3rd degree burns on the palms of my hands!!! People thought I purchased the parts instead of making them, so it was worth it.

    Default welding trailer

    I will keep an eye on that. Thanks for the heads up!
    I agree with RAD completely, I made the first trailer same way, I've been there. It will bend where the deck meets the tongue, this is only intended to save your welder. When you hit a big pothole the stress will be too much for the neck, the tool box won't help it any depending on weight. It does look nice. P.S. put some Miller Decals on it.

    Just thought I would leave this, it is a website for miller decals for your trailer and machine. Later Josh
