    Default I can't be the only one that gets this type of work

    There's got to be a few of you guys out there that has gotten a job or two to repair someone else's mess. Well anyways here's a couple more for your viewing pleasure.


    This is a home built trailer that I took in as a trade in on a new trailer. The only reason I took the trade in was to get it off the streets for good. It was cut up into scrap within minutes of the customer leaving the shop.

    Here's an axle that the customer thought that maybe I could just weld it back together for them. This is from a boat trailer carrying a small 14' fiberglass boat, it made it to Fl. from New Hampshire before it broke.

    Gee that dump truck repair looks like my old dump truck. That guy must have gotten around. After i bought it and looked at it I wondered what I was thinking. Glad that Rocky took time out to come up here and show me how to go about fixing it. Thanks again Rocky.
