    One of my tenants left behind an adjustable weight bench. I wanted to cut it up and hang on to some of the square tubing…. but the new tenant got rid of it. Broke my heart LOL The tubes that fit in the tubes for the uprights that supported the barbell would have been perfect for your project

    That gives me some new ideas of places to look. Thanks! 🙂

    Slowly adding to the pile of scrap metal for various projects coming up. Bicycle spokes, computer case sides, various sizes of tubing, etc.
    A couple of the suggestions in this thread have provided scraps but still looking for other sources. Do have enough at this point to get started on the first couple projects – or at least do some practice welding to go towards the eventual projects.

    While shopping for a small Acetylene welder outfit today – I learned of a local metal scrap business that I hope to visit this week. The associate at Lowe’s indicated they have a very large selection of scrap metals for very little.

    If you are in horse country find a few farriers and have them save old horseshoes. They are a good source of scrap metal and can be used for many projects.

    That’s a great find. Hopefully you will become good friends. A resource like that is priceless.

    BE the change you want to see.

    I got by the place about a week ago, first thing I picked up was a piece of sheetmetal to use as a worktable.
    The pickings were a bit slim, not sure if it is seasonal or just a matter of being there at the right time – but I will be stopping by on occasion to see if the selection changes.

    That is a very nice project. I’d say Montana is pretty well in horse country so I’ll start asking around.

    Is that a tire rim for the base and did you cut any air vent holes towards to bottom to feed air to the fire?

    It is a tire rim but I must confess, it is on my todo list. I have not made mine yet. Air holes at the bottom are a good idea that I will add to mine. Thjanks for the tip!

    That sure is a nice burn pit. Very nice design.

    I have seen a few different firepits made out of rims or cut off barrels. If there are no holes in the bottom to feed fresh air to the fire it does seem to starve the burn.

    Anyone have any experience making storage racks for metal out of black pipe. And not that typical home depot garbage, i have some scrap sprinkler pipe and want to make some nice racks to store all me metal scraps. Deciding either standing up or laying flat making shelves.

    Sounds like a nice project. Bet YouTube has a video.

    Seems like it would just be a matter of determining what fittings you would need to mount to the wall. I have no experience with making a storage rack from sprinkler pipe – but I would think the amount of weight would be a big consideration if storing horizontal on shelves made from the sprinkler pipe.
