A gentleman approached me a while back about building him a trailer and transfering his cooker off the trailer it was on so I said lets do it. Here is the orginial setup



getting to work





Trying out the new miller extreme siutcase welder running it off 300 amp pipeline pro it will do tha job. Tyler has been having my mig in the shop tied up on his bumper jobs

<a><img></a>



The next pic is what i would call an econmy cooker I built for a guy, he is just direct cooker with charcoal under the grates it aint nothing special but he likes it





I built me and the wife a little firepit and added grates to the top nothing special.... but my brother came by and had to have it, got a little christmas cash anyway







Tha t is TQ needing a much deserved break me and mamma were fixing to head out



The next pics are some of my son Tyler work he is a master fabricator in my humble opinion
This bumper was a challenge in order to fit all the angles and truck profile. I showed him long ago you can take 90 degree elbos and make any fitting you want by doing simple layouts on the shop table. Heck now he is teaching daddy new stuff.

As I was saying earlier I showed Tyler a long time ago that it was more cost effective to buy 90 degree elbows and miter them in to whatever degree fitting you want. whether it be 45s 22.5 10degree whatever just make a simple layout on the shop table and wham you can have whatever degree you want. We do not have a pipe bender so every angle is mitered either from pipe fittings or pipe and we always use 90 degree elbows when fittings are used. You do not want to just miter the pipe because in a lot of cases the point on the miter would just not look right. So mitering fittings and cutting with a metabo or whatever gives the angel a more radius look. Now that I made that as clear as mud i wil take pics of some layouts and post them it is very easy and can be done on large pipe also Smile Smile
