Mike the machine shop I buy from cuts them to basic size for me. I bend them at the plumbing company. 18 gauge works best for me. In one of my other photos shows the cutters I use for roofing metal

Jeff You can develop Talent like Marty. You just have to try.

My RR is 15 years old. When I started I needed two bridges.

I bought a Welder at Home Depot and Taught myself to weld.

It was ugly.

But with the help of Dennis Rayon and a few others here on MLS I got good at it.

Now like Marty I build all kinds of things.

Heck I even weld on my Back Hoe.

The back hoe is another story

TOTALLY agree with JJ. If I can do it, so can anyone else who is crazy.

Secrecy leads to speculation.

Looks like it could be filled with ice, and keep your beer cold?

Is there a gate for dumping between the rails?
Do you have to push some back up hill?

I like your fun projects.
