Welding Project Plans – Trailer Ramps Project

To start with I used the Longevity MIGweld 140 to fabricate this project. I recommend this welder as a low cost way to get started MIG welding, and because it has been a good welder.

To start with I cut 2 pieces of 2″ x 2″ x 1/8″ thick angle iron. Both pieces were cut 3 feet long. I then cut 5 pieces at 10″ long. I’ve got a 45 degree magnet holding the angle iron up for tack welding.
