    A rod holder. It was my first welding project after learning the basics.

    Basically, it's a box, with 4 slots that hold rod on an angle, and a larger box where the stubs end up!

    Or click on the Green "Welding Projects" Pop-Up Window- top right of this thread

    Are you asking from a teacher perspective or a student perspective?

    depending on the suplies available a fule tank for the back of a truck is a good chance to put in some long TIG beads..

    I built a feeder out of sucker rod, angle iron and a 55 gallon drum my junior year in HS for vo-ag. Big strike going on with the rod manufacturers so I was stuck welding with what I could get. I can't recall what it was now (been 30 years) but it was supposed to be the same as 6011 only it had a black flux. The angle was galvanized and the flux smelled like burning hair. I wasn't real popular for a while.

    making your own tools can be educational and entertaining

    Furniture using tractor seats. I make most of my own furniture out of sq tubing which works good. Or even other farm "found" opjects too.

    perhaps a small gate using items found around a farm,to add character to it.such as horse shoes,branding irons crossed over at a x shape, a tree using various size round bar bent to mimic branches .you get the point.

    Small-ish Projects for High Schoolers

    Hi all-

    I'm searching for small-ish welding or metalworking projects for high school juniors and seniors. It would be great if the projects had an agricultural "feel" to them. Thanks in advance!
