I just want to say hello to all you fellow welders out there. I am new to the forum. In couple weeks I will have some photos of projects that I have completed recently. My first question for you all is. Have any of you welded up a trailer hitch and ball mount. I have a ford ranger with a 2inch reciever, the reciever is all rusted and I cant get ball mount back into it. I was going to cut of receiver tube and weld a new one in place. I also wanted to make my own adjustable ball mount. I have a hobart 175. Welding up the reciver should be a peice of cake, it the adjusable ball mount that I am a little leary about. It is a piece of 3/4 inch welded to two pieces of 3/8. i just dont think that 175 has it in her to do it. Has anyone done this before?
