    Default Welding/fab jobs

    Looking for light welding and/or fab jobs. I'm set up for steel and aluminum MIG, plasma/abrasive/oxy-acetylene cutting. Let me know if you would like something modified, repaired, or created.

    Some examples -

    This is a boat hauler, yes?

    I'm not sure I'm serious about it yet, but it sure sounds like fun to have one of these for my canoe. 19 feet long and about 50 inch beam, but it would be even better if it could also safely haul a 23 foot canoe of same beam. Normal trip length a mile or two; five miles would be a long trip, so light use.

    Would it be easy for you to know what that would cost for you to make it? I don't want to put you to a long estimating job please.

    Don't know if you want to respond via post or PM - either works for me. Thanks.

    I know comments are supposed to be minimal on this subform, but I have to say, that is some really nice work.

    Its actually a log skidding arch. I didn't know much about them till I was asked to build one. Pretty clever machine.

    Regarding the canoe hauler, if you can find or draw a rough pic of what you are looking for it would help immensely. The sky is the limit on designing something like that. Sounds like a fun project.

    Finished the rack and front bumper this weekend. Significant improvement over the factory tubing thing that was on it.

    Rob,

    I can't thank you enough for your time, your hard work, and your professionalism that you put towards the Argo projects that I brought to your table.
    As the last pic shows, the end results of your craftmanship are exceptional. I look forward to filling the roof rack full of meat and horns and the alders, the willows, and the spruce don't stand a chance against the bullet proof brush guard up front.

    Thank you my Friend....I look forward to our next project....( Argo Dave )

    For all the guys out there that need something welded, frabricated, cut, shaped, bent, or twisted.....Folks this is the guy you want to bring your projects to.
    I've had stuff built and fixed all over the country but very rarely do you meet someone that you know will exceed what your true expectations really are.
    I can promise that Rob will not only meet your standards but more than likely he will exceed them. If you are looking for a fair handshake, quality work from start to finish and more importantly....Honesty !!!, this is your man for all your jobs.

    Thanks for the glowing report Dave! It was a fun project for sure. I may have forgotten to add that guided ice fishing trip to your bill.... :)

    Rob, again, thank you very much for welding the cast iron woodstove part for me. Not being able to buy a replacement left me with no choice but to have the borken piece fixed. By the way, my goofy son, Logan, says hello to your son :)

    Rob's building aluminum davits for me to use with the Electra Dyne pot pullers i sell, easy to install on most boats and davit/puller is easy to remove when your done shrimping for the season. Great guy to work with and goes out of his way to make it the way the customer wants it. Outboard kicker motor racks, radar arches, rod racks, dingy racks, cooler racks the list goes on, he can do it just bring him your ideas. I'll have this davit and pullers to see at all the outdoors shows this spring. One other thing they are reasonably priced.

    Thanks Steve, aluminum is a bit more challenging but fun none the less.

    Knocked out a stout rack for a Ranger today -

    If you posted here and now cant find it, I did a little thread cleanup tonight. Trying to keep this thread pretty clean with examples of the projects I've been doing. Let me know if you have a creation that needs to come to life.
