A fence post no more.

Here are a couple of projects that I did a while back.


I built this out of a old hot water heater, three old steel fence post, a 1/2" steel rod, and a couple pieces of 1/2" square tubing. Just add sand, dirt or cement if you want ( I used some old sand that I had ) and you have a cheap roller.(my tank is starting to get thin from the rust but I've used it for 3yrs now).


I was needing a set of ramps one day while looking around for a couple of old boards I seen this steel fence post and wondered if it would hold sure enough they work. I load a polaris 425 in the back of a truck with these. They were built out of 7 6 1/2' steel fence post and some re-bar to help hold the ramps on the tail gate. After I built these I showed them to a friend and he used three fence post length wise and welded short pieces on the back to hold them together. He loads a Suzuki Samuri in the back of a stock trailer with his. I have also built some deer stands out of fence post (kind of heavy but will last a long time not like tubing). Just a added note steel fence post are made from recycled rail road iron. Would like to see other projects built out of fence post.

I have two sets of loading ramps. My favorite are the lighter wood one's but occasionallt I break out the Fire truck running board ramps. The way I figure it....If they can handle a 49 chevy coupe they can handle anything. Great ideas! Keep em comin!! Sean aka Zippo
