I know I couldn't justify the expense, but nice tools and equipment is my one vice. If I were making a living, I'd probably get a dedicated truck and outfit it.

    This leads to question. How many welders that make their living from it use a trailer set up verses a truck rig?
    I like the trailer idea way better however if you ever drop your trailer in town you should have a trailer wheel boot so nobody can hookup and take off.
    there is no such thing as I will only be a few minutes my stuff should be okay
    I'm only getting a coffee.

Most likely, this would be my trailer mounted Ingersol Rand air compressor for arcair applications.

    I did a scaled CAD layout complete with dimensions before I started construction. I also did front-to-rear center of gravity calculations to insure the tongue weight would be balanced. If anyone wants copies, email me and I'll send them to you. The CAD will be in PDF format so you won’t need special software to view them. The center of gravity calculations are in an Excel spreadsheet.

    Davis.garyb<at>gmail.comxx is my address. You’ll have to insert the @ symbol in the proper place and remove the xx. I write it like this to keep the computer trolls from pulling it off this forum and adding it to their spam list.

    There are eight-ways-to-Sunday to lay out a welding trailer. This one doesn’t have it all, but I like it’s simplicity. It rarely leaves the farm and will spend most of its working life welding fence bracing, corrals, etc.

    BTW, Thanks for all the kind compliments.

    Very nice Job, I make my living fabricating custom projects and I must say yours looks very nice. I can't say i've ever had the pleasure of building a welding trailer but I have built my share of custom trailers. If I may, I will post a pic of a blue trailer I built.

    Flag Fire Water Bottles

    I notice you have Flag Fire water extinguishers.
    This may not apply to you or you may already know this.
    There has been a recall on Flag Fire Water extinguishers purchased between 2003 and 2005. See link http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07507.html
    Really nice trailer also.

    Great job you did

    Gary, I've not seen the professionals in my area do any better. Superb job!
    Is that a miller Blue? I've not found any paint to match Miller's.
