    Started on the anti-homeless/vandal gate design the other day and finished up the prototype today

    Got a couple small changes to make on the production ones but overall seems like it'll do the job.
    Went with oversized tube hinges and tabs for the fabric securement, probably saved 30-40 bux in hardware costs and labor was probably quicker.

    If you only have to hit the bar to open I would counter with a piece of metal bent at a 90 to get in. Or use the same to push in the catch, counter that with a box over the catch.

    Yeah, that's the first thing I told em' but unfortunately the opener design is required by law... the finished doors will have a bigger anti-reacharound plate but still has the same weakness. It's all about making these properties 'less' attractive to prospective vandals/vagrants/homeless/methheads/etc.... A nice double keyed deadbolt is the best way... but can't do that on fire exits....

    We've been fighting that on a construction site. Fire marshal has been requiring push bars on all the man gates out of the perimeter fence.

    Yep, about all you can do then is put some alarm on there and then it's just going off all the time when the crews need access...unless you time it but them things just get even more complicated...

    We have to do a bunch of these so the main thing was to come up with a generic design that will work across lots of buildings/sites, I can't change the main design characteristics of chainlink and pushbar... there are things I have thought of to inhibit the bent rebar vulnerability but then it doesn't pass code....

    A large Rottweiler on a long chain would be a far more effective deterrent.

    Got the demo up, still have to attach the closer and switch out the reacharound plate.

    Solder on radiator mounting bracket. Must have loosened up, vibrated and destroyed itself. Too many cracks to weld up so made new.

    Nice gate, well done. Why the crossbar at the bottom? Seem like something to be eliminated if you do a lot more.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    The cross bar at the bottom is mainly for ease of install... to keep things where they should be for a good fit and latch... I will probably have to cut some of them off after install because of the varying designs of the entry landings, some go to dirt inside the walls... and I don't want a tripping hazard

    Will be starting on 6 more tomorrow with the design changes, might even make up some jigs for certain parts of these...

    Started putting this little atv flip disc set together last weekend. Just need to figure out a good way to mount the tires to the top, so that the flip over tow option will work.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    @koenbro, that's a nice looking base you didn't want to make the whole thing from 80-20 huh? $$$


    @ davidpuddy, nice job on hte box frame... looks like it ought to be plenty stout What kind of wheels are you planning on?





    Well, between other jobs I finally got a chance to add a pipe restraint to the lowbuck notcher... something I been planning on for a long time now just never took the time to do it... works great! really cuts down on pipe slip... a lot... especially in the heavier gauges.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    Oh yeah!!!, air or hydro I have thought about... but right now I just slip it in the receiver in the truck( or anything else) and I'm ready to go... if I start making things easier/bigger/more complicated then they're not as portable for field work.... I guess I could get a second one for shop use.... nah...for shop work I'd get something more predictable.

    You're on to something Haven't counted but extrusion might be 3+ times the cost of steel tube, and that's before the milling charge. Of course extrusion has its advantages, but I like to weld

    Hey thanks Ronsil, they are just wheelbarrow type wheels that I picked up from harbor freight. They are never flat type wheels. Rated for 300 pounds each, so should be able to hold the weight....granted that I figure out a good way to mount them.]

    I'd just weld on a couple pieces of flat bar or some c channel on each side and a couple 45 braces on it if you go with flatbar... drill a hole for the shaft and spacers... and done

    Oh, and put them at an angle(about 30 degrees) towards the front if you want it to be a little easier to tip.
