    I really like the trailer, very clean. What size channel (size/weight) did you use, and is the star near the tongue cast iron? Did you weld it on or braze it?

    The stars are "grey cast" and are welded on from the rear side. I drilled holes in the channel behind the stars and went at it with the MM35.

    The frame and tongue for the trailer is 4x5.4 channel. The cross supports are 3x4.1 channel.

    Default Excellent Project

    Gary that is an excellent project, great design and the implementation, craftsmanship and detail is outstanding. About the best I've seen. The documentation and pictures are top notch too.

    Gary,
    I gotta say that your trailer is a beutifull piece of work. I'm sure it's really something to see in person. I have been thinking about building one also. I just don't have room on my truck for all the tools and welding equipment.I did like Jim's input. He made some good points.
    Nice job,

    Thanks for bringing this up Weldingrod, I don't know how I missed this one. Great looking trailer. He is still on the member list so maybe you can e-mail him.
    To all who contribute to this board.
    My sincere thanks , Pete.
