very nice. First time?! Very well done! Some people are just cut to do this type of thing... How did you come up with all of the dimensions?

Thanks! I just used a tape measure really. No crazy scientific formulas.

Hey great job. I'm really impressed. Looks very nice and you obviously put a lot of work and sweat into it. I have one question though. I too have a Hobart 110, but at 135 instead of 140. I'm curious what your voltage settings were (1-4) and what your wire speed (aka amps) were throughout your project. Also, were you able to get good penetration on the thicker stuff like the bumper mounts and d-ring mounts? Finally, how long were you able to weld before blowing your welder circuit breaker? If it ever did.

Thanks and great job. You've just shown me I to can build quality things with a 110 volt welder.

Tim

Shackle tabs are 1" and bumper mounts are 1/4." The bumper mounts, shackle tabs, receiver and spindle are all from A-Z. The whole thing was built with a grinder, chop saw and my HH140. What I wouldnt give for a plasma cutter!
What are the specs onthe tube used for the bumpers? I know you said 3/16" thick. 2x4?
