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.

                      Another request for plans

                      I receintly signed up to receive the news letters, and found your article and pictures in one of the back issues. You do nice work.

                      Some time ago, I mentioned to my wife that I would like to have an engine driven welder so that I could help out a couple of land-owners that have been kind enough to allow me to hunt on their property for a number of years.

                      I must be doing something right, because about a week ago, Santa Claus brought me a brand shiny new Trailblazer 302.

                      If you are not sick of requests for plans, please add me to the list of those who would like to copy your design. "Immitation is the most sincere form of flattery."

                      Thank you,

                          I really like it man... but I gotta tell ya... you made the same mistake I did. You put your oxy acy bottles on it. Its a 500 dollar fine in MD. And de. And they can also shut you down right on the spot. I dunno the laws where your at but I would imagine their the same....?

                          To get by at all, even on a truck your straps have to be DOT approved. Or at least look like the ones that are DOT approved. I would bet that if a DOT man passed you goin down the highway he would stop you. It happened to me just cause I had em on the trailer. I made my own straps and he didn't even notice that
