An Easy Positioner And Two Horses For The Metal Shop

So taking a break from the welding this weekend I thought it only right I upload a few quick welding projects. First is probably the worlds most easy positioner. I have had this file for a very long time, so I can,t remember where I found it. The positioner is designed for light work. Like the one I built a few years ago, it is fully adjustable, however this one mounts to a table.

Don't forget to click twice depending on your screen size for best view.



The next two projects are something I could have used in my current project. Light wood horses or roller stands are ok for woodworking or light shop work but for large welding projects and handling heavy steal sections these two heavy welded pipe and angle iron horses are just the thing.

The Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation published a book called "Welding Plans For Farm And School Shop". Couldn't find the publication date anywhere but it looks like it came from the 60's. There are a handful of other interesting projects in this book that I will try to remember to upload, in the future.

Plans - Welding & Cutting Bench

So from the same book as the last post, "Arc Welding Projects" Volume II, comes this great little plan for a welding and cutting bench. It is small enough that it can be moved around and large enough to work on many project sized assemblies. There are a few accessories that you don't normally find on a small bench. A small vise mounted on the front right corner and a shelf on the bottom stretchers will make it complete for me.

Here are the plans, good resolution, so click twice to expand for best view.



So tomorrow is a snow day, got 30 cm. (12") and 1/6 of a mile of heavy wet snow to clear. They are forecasting 13*C (55*F) for this weekend. So knock on wood, spring might actually be here.


Plans - Truck Mounted Hoist

So while I was browsing the Metalworking Drop Box yesterday I came across plans for a truck mounted hoist. Problem is, it was such a poor scan it was unusable. It was scanned from the Lincoln Foundation book "Arc Welded Projects Volume II". I checked my shelves and sure enough, I had it. These project books are all available on the Lincoln welding site, but sadly shipping to Canada has recently become prohibitive.

I have had use for one of these many times on my yard truck, and I have been on the verge of buying an import on sale more than once. I have always backed off because I have everything I need to build my own, (if I could only get off my butt cheeks, lol ). This plan is better than the imports and if you build it, you control the quality.

So here is the plan, resolution is very good, so expand for best view.
