Default Home Workshop/Mobile Unit...

Hey Guys,
Thought I'd post my welding setups here in SW PA. I do general welding, fabrication, machining, re-creating obsolete parts, custom AL D/Plate items, classic car restorations. I go mobile to some of the new home construction sites, customers restoring classic cars, & several large landscaping companies for their equipment repairs onsite. The photos are my garage shop and my mobile unit. I have a machine shop in one section of my basement w/mill, lathe, dry cut saw, band saw, belt sander, buffers, drill press, & O/A. I like the enclosed trailer for my mobile unit as I can park it & use my truck for other necessities. In addition, it is so much more economical with fuel nowadays. Anyway, I wanted to share for others who may be seeking ideas or contemplating mobile services & maintain a more economical outlay or on a limited budget. Denny

Who's Danny?
Nice trailer, Denny! Did the roof come with the bracing or did you add it?
Allot of trailers just have the fiberglass roof. Yours looks nice and strong.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the compliments.

To charlieh: I use strictly Freud Diablo 14" ferrous blades as they have been the best I have ever used or found. They are C-7 tungsten tipped, 1800rpm, made in Italy & I get mine from the E-Bay seller "cripesdistributing". He has an E-Bay store so you can go to the site map & select E-Bay stores, type in his name & check his listings.

To Caliber: The roof is made like that from the factory. Superb construction overall and tows excellently. It is made by East Tennessee Trailers and is 5' X 8' as I needed a compact setup for some of the sites I go to. I got it from a local trailer dealer who had it on E-Bay & it didn't sell for his reserve price. He changed manufacturers and this was the last ETT he had. Believe me.... CASH TALKS!!! He sold it to me $400 less than his reserve price because I told him what I was going to make it into & he said perhaps I would also be kindly if he needed any welding done. So.... we both became beneficial to one another just because we both were willing to negotiate. And we referred one another for additional customers. I like doing business that way.

Denny

Nice outfits Denny. I like the idea behind the mobile unit most of all.
