    Re: Building projects made from water well pipe and oil pipe

    A lot of Texas is fenced in with old 2 3/8" and 2 7/8" drill pipe. theres also a whole bunch of guys running around with bale spear trailers that are made of the same drill pipe. It can also be used as racks and bumpers on your truck and trailer. Pretty much anything you want to make can be made with drill pipe. A lot of guys will use 6011 on it as most of the time fencing will not require a 7018 and ain't no one got time to mess with a rod oven. Most people will also use a torch or plasma to saddle mouth the 2 3/8" pipe to fit around the 2 7/8" posts. its easier and looks better than trying to saddle pipe to fit the same size pipe. Theres a guy on youtube that posts alot of stuff about how to work with the stuff. But be warned he is kind of snobby acting like he's the best welder ever type of guys. If you can deal with that and sort out all the false "I learned this from my daddy so it must be right" kind of things he says, from the actual truth you can learn a lot from him.

    Also If you have a buzz box all you need to run that is a 6.8kw generator or something similar. I run my stickmate off a generator. On mobile jobs just toss both in the bed of your truck or on a trailer of some sort. I got a 100' extension cord to plug into the generator with an outlet that fits the welders. the cords really like a 40' and 60' cord because 100' of cord gets heavy after awhile.

    Actually just being a hobby welder, I need all the help I can get. So, the Red Face isn’t going anywhere.
    Don’t pay any attention to me
    I’m just a hobbyist!
