View Full Version : Wanted: Welding Help/Work

07-19-2012, 11:08 AM
Old Toyota friend hoping to tap this talent pool for an odd request.

I chop wood professionally when I am not working my day job and need some help building 5 stands to chop blocks that you stand on. I have all the pieces cut, labeled including a model to match things up to. What I need is someone to burn them together.

I am in Fort Collins and was hoping to find a semi-local welder type person with a 220 machine and experience. Not trying to be a jerk, but I need these to stay together.

No rush, but would like to have it sooner than later. I imagine it is a good afternoon of work putting everything together and have cash money consistent with that time investment. Material is a mix of new mild steel, 1/8" and 3/16" mostly.

I have attached a picture of what we are doing roughly. Please PM or e-mail using flygt enstein AT hot mail DOT com, take out the spaces.

Hello Adrian. Glad to hear you're still in Colorado and that you sold you're rig (I guess). Someone here might be able to help you. Good luck!

I'm in Lakewood, its not local, but I'd be happy to weld them. I'll be in the garage this weekend working on my buggy :)

I too can help. If you venture down to the Denver area, I'm sure you'll find several of us willing and ready to tackle this

Thanks gents.

I sold the rig after the meth head smashed it. Received bad guidance when changing insurance, could not have a stated value policy on the rig and was driving it less than 1000 miles a year, so my uninsured property damage was zero. I always thought it would die upside down on a trail, really took that in the shorts. Sold the rig as it sat, it has been resurrected and is on the trails in Kansas as best I know. I am now looking for a diesel American truck to drive around the country lumberjack racing.

Jeremy, I will be in touch, I am out of town this coming week for a contest but will drop you a proper line before the first of the month.

Big fun, Adrian. I used to compete back in the day, a long time ago. I can't remember anything more fun that chopping block! Of course we always used two by fours nailed into an A frame to support the logs on each side. Your welded ones will be so much better! Have fun.
