    Default Trailer Tongue Stand

    Greetings.

    This is my first attempt at this, so please be gentle.

    I am very new at TIGing & am constantly attempting to find new ways to learn.

    A friend at work asked me if I could build him a stand to elevate the front of his boat trailer.

    Of course I agreed. Below is the pic of the completed stand.

    I could have MIGed the entire thing & done it a lot quicker. Some of the welds are pretty good, with most being only average (or below). I had a great time doing it, & actually it turned out pretty decent.

    He will have to cut the center post to fit, since he didn't tell me how tall to make it.

    Default The "S" Word

    You just had to ask didn't you?

    This was taken only a couple of hours after the pic of the trailer stand.

    The leaves aren't even down yet. Those flakes are huge!

    Only 7 more months till spring.

    I like your stand.

    I can't quite tell from the pic, what are you running vertically?

    Default Stand Material

    The whole thing was made from leftovers.
    The short piece that the center vertical fits into is a chunk of one inch ID square tube with approx 1/8th walls. It is about 6 inches long.
    The center tube is one inch OD sqaure with 0.080 walls.
    I clamped the short piece in the mill/drill & ran a 3/8 drill repeatedly through it with the spacing (on the inner piece) at one inch on center. I figured that way, every hole would fit, & they did.

    My friend at work was thrilled with it.

    He is an A&P mechanic for the air charter company that I fly for in Anchorage.
