The new cheapo metal cutting bandsaw is proving its worth. If I had it 6 months ago i would have saved about $5,000 in medical bills. Glad I have it. The shop is just getting setup. I had to be creative for the suppoerts. The chair and the drill press held the 20' sections of angle iron while it was being cut:
I cut a 20' section of c shaped channel into 2 10' pieces. I then welded 24" pieces of 1.5x1.5 x 1/4" angle iron. Total width is 30":
Flip it over and you can see how the c-channel will hold the pipe for the uprights:
I layed expanded metal over it and welded it in place. I'll have to cut the tag end off and scab a piece or two to finish the layer:
I have over 120' of pipe ready for the uprights along with 2 more 10' pieces of the channell for the bottom. Looks like the total cost is gonna be $300. This does not include wheels/axle which will come at a later date to make it towable:
I'll update as I progress. I need it functional by Sunday.
