Sledges made of scrap materials

As soon as the first snow fell, it turned out that the house does not have such a necessary winter cargo vehicle, like a sled. Children's sleds have long since “gone” to a well-deserved rest in a pile of scrap metal, and they would be rather weak for carrying loads. We had to take up the manufacture of new sledges, so to speak, economic - more robust and adapted for the transportation of goods.

For sledging you will need

From tools:
  • Bulgarian.
  • Welding machine.
  • From materials:
  • Pipes.
  • Plates.
  • Corners.

Making sleds

The very basis for future sledges will serve us railing from an old bed, which I cut exactly in the middle.
