mig welding a jeep bumper kit project

Welding Projects are fun. I am trying to do more of them to mix things up and make my videos more interesting. I think seeing a weld done on a real welding project is more fun to watch than just sticking 2 pieces of metal together.

This has got me scratching my head for new ideas so I just ordered a 5 volume series from the James F Lincoln foundation (jflf.org) to get new ideas for projects.

One of the most useful welding projects ever...

downdraft cutting table project

one of the absolute most useful welding projects I ever made is a downdraft plasma cutting table.

Not a cnc type plasma table, just a table that gets rid of the smoke from plasma cutting, torch cutting, stick welding, or grinding.

Welding a Jeep Bumper from Swag off road using a Hobart 210 mvp


One of the most fun and easiest welding projects I ever built was a rear jeep bumper kit from swag off road. ( swagoffroad.com)

The bumper kit practically puts itself together....and the Hobart 210 mvp runs sweet using .035" er70s-6 wire and 75/25 gas.

DIY press brake kit from swag


Another easy welding project that turns into a handy piece of shop equipment once its done...is a press brake kit for bending metal.

Its designed to be used with a Harbor Freight press but also works with any similar press.

SWAG off Road makes some really great stands for portable band saws. swagoffroad.com

But they dont make a stand for my Porter Cable. So I made one myself and now I use it all the time..Its that handy.

Sometimes I need to make a quite cut on some tubing or threaded rod. IT works great for quit cuts. And I can take the portaband out of the stand to make cuts in a vise if I need to.

DIY portaband stand



talk about useful welding projects?

A stand for your portable bandsaw converts an already useful tool into a vertical bandsaw for cutting round stock, notching sheet metal, and more.

And anytime you want to use it as a portaband, you just pop it loose and go to town.

A stand for the portaband stand


a stand for moving the portaband stand around the shop seemed like a very good idea.

Turns out I was right.

I dont move it much. It stays plugged in in the corner most of the time but occasionally, I wheel it over next to my welding table to trim or notch long pieces without need roller stands.
