    Re: Let's see the welding rigs

    Nice rigs; I am getting more and more excited about the BOB KING style decks. Here in Canada you don't see that style as most of us have large cabinets at the front and spools. I am just in the process of specing out a new rig for pipelining, prob gonna go with a F-450 crew cab dually and a deck from Ace Manufacturing in all alum. Never bought a deck for myself before always built my own. But I am no longer contract welding and now wheel a company rig for a large pipeline company so can afford to buy custom built.

    Bob King is just a few miles from me. His beds are super nice but you'd be surprised how humble his place is. It's just a nondescript little place on the highway.

    Re: Let's see the welding rigs

    Sutto, your truck brings back memories. The last welding truck my father bought was a red 1979 F-350 cab & chassis. He retired in 1981 with 35 years of chasing oil rigs.
    Thanks for the memory.

    Not as fancy as some of the rigs here but this is my first one.
    all hangers & mounts built from scrap iron,(I know there really isn't any such thing as scrap iron) & used horse shoes. Lets see if I can post a pic or two.

    Here is mine, I've still got a long way to go to get where I want, but it works well for hauling groceries and a few cases of Lonestar!

    Looks great Andy, that's a real nice bed. You did a great job of making use of space.

    Huck, yours looks great too. I really like your lo-pro recessed boxes.


    It's cool to see everybody's rigs and the diversified field of uses for them - great thread


    I already started a thread about this bed when I was building it, but I wanted to be part of the official "welding rigs" thread so here it is. Still need to build boxes, recess the rear lights/license plate, mount a vice, and get a reel for my torch hose but it's at least operational now.

    I really don't know how you guys do it!!
    What material is that bed made out of?
    Did you cut, weld, and grind for all the angles, or did you use a break to make bends?
    It looks fantastic for sure.

    Re: Let's see the welding rigs

    Thanks Sixshooter
    Mine is all 12 gauge, tube steel and a 10” piece of angle. Dollied the corners over with a hammer and hand bent most everything else with a slight guide cut. Used a few pieces of pipe to round the corners of the boxes.
    I have 3 receiver tubes mounted in the back for tooling….vice, rollout etc

    Before the lead well , the bed could be tilted up like a dump. Now the well hit’s the hitch.

    Thanks AMMO22! And yes I cut and welded all the angles and went through a lot of flap disks! And mine is made from 1/4 plate on top (overkill), 1/8 plate for skirts, 6'' channel for the frame and 3'' channel for the cross-members or "ribs".


    Adam, I haven't had any issues running the farm tags yet. But this next month I am doing away with them. Of course I am always doing official farm/ranch business at all times lol

    Re: Let's see the welding rigs

    May I ask why you are doing away with them? I have been thinking of getting some for my truck. I do live on my ranch but I also have a house in the city that we are at during the week sometimes.

    Re: Let's see the welding rigs

    Well for one you don't save more than a few bucks a year. I just dont think it's worth messing with, because I also do alot of things in my trucks that aren't farm/ranch related and I know it's just a matter of time before I run across a officer that feels the need to nail me to the wall. I don't know, I have vehicles tagged both ways and for me, straight tags are better most of the time.
