    I kinda figured it was considering how nicely done it is.
    Blue: 325 Trailblazer, 225g plus Bobcat, arc reach 12vs, 8vs, XMT350, Syncrowave 200, Cp200 & 10a feeder, Roughneck 2E
    Red: Power Mig 256, Power Mig 350mp, Python push-pull
    Other nonsense: F550 with 5k crane, welder compressor, torches, and every thing else...
    Koike ik-12 beetle track cart, TD cutmaster 82 (hate it) all torches are propane, Bridgeport mill, lathe, press, small brake, Milwaukee mag drill, Jd squared 32 bender, speeder 9x16 horizontal saw, things I can’t remember...

        Looks good. 1 1/2" sch 40 is pretty thin so maybe stitch a piece of 1x1/4 flat bar to the hinge side and then weld your hinges to the flat bar. How did you bend the pieces in the middle?

                Put the sliding bit on the gate, and then it can swing any direction.

                  Thats a nice bender they sell. I may have to pick one up if I get into a bunch of railing work. Shipping to Canada is propably pretty expensive. You guys get all the good stuff down there.

                    Well my the second verse turned out as good as the first, here’s a walk through gate made from the left overs of the big gate. The swag off-road attachments for the Harbor Frieght roller are the only way to go. There was a bit of a learning curve, but it works pretty well.

                            Cool, and the long gate in the background.

                            For the HF roller, did you just add the Swag wings, or were there other enhancements?
