Finally almost done with my Low Rider frame. This dude is stupid heavy and doesn’t give an inch! All welded steel frame with a 14 guage 3″ box tube frame sittin pretty at 5′ x 10′. Cant wait to start getting everything assembled. Updates to come.

Wow, that looks really great!
Can’t wait to see it finished!April 23, 2018 at 8:46 am #58555
And I thought my designs are always overkill 🙂
Looks great, though. Have fun with the rest of the build-out.April 24, 2018 at 11:04 pm #58713
Why is the floor elevated like that?April 25, 2018 at 4:36 am #58743
Why is the floor elevated like that?
Welding while bent over all day sucks.April 25, 2018 at 7:49 am #58765
Exactly! It is still low so i end up on hands and knees, but below is scrap steel storage and the wood floor allows for jig blocks being screwed or stapled in.April 25, 2018 at 1:28 pm #58798
Impressive!May 9, 2018 at 7:41 pm #59777
Coincidentally, I have been working on my own steel table for my Lowrider. Do you think the 14 GA steel is sufficient? Or is 11ga worth the extra $$?May 9, 2018 at 7:46 pm #59778
The 14 guage 3” box tube is killer strong. Almost no flex and everything else is 16 guage, save for the angle iron (1/4” thick) i used on the inside to prevent bowing long term. This this is mad strong. 11 guage would be cool, but definitely overkill.May 9, 2018 at 8:34 pm #59784
Now you just need to be milling something heavy, like lead or gold… Hmmm, I wonder how much a 4x8x1″ sheet of gold weighs?May 9, 2018 at 8:54 pm #59789May 10, 2018 at 4:35 am #59803
I’ve held a real brick of gold. They’re way heavier than people think. They almost never get it right in the movies, where the skinny damsel is waving a gold brick over her head. She’d have a really hard time lifting the thing.August 8, 2018 at 11:50 am #65852
