  • dude, use a shot of oil, wd-40, compressor crank oil, hell even Bar And Chain oil is good. ANYTHING when you're drilling steel like that. your drills are absolutely burning up, you had heat-blue chips coming out. a hole that size really should not need a clamp to keep the pressure on it

  • Nice rebuild. But fyi, when your drilling thru high carbon steel, try drilling at a slower drill speed, it makes things easier, and not as hard on drill bits.

  • Good video. I did feel he should have braced both sides of the trailer chassis the same way though, there may have been hairline cracks unseen to the naked eye.

  • How u tucked the metal under the edge that is how i strap down planks when owner wants plank insted of drilling fasteners that will cause rust

    Eric LakotaEric Lakota20 kun oldin
  • You realy dont want to srew the tralor decking down that much because it puts holes in your steel and you want to make it easy to rip up when it gets worn i dont screw them down inless costomer wants i us 3-4 steel straps one at each end atleast one over the center. And hold the boards with that and evey one loves it and their asent fasteners to put holes in planks and holes in steel rusting with fasteners ive decked 1 trailor 3 times in 20 years

  • TIM from Canada if you were thinking of it you could’ve brought your bobcats parking out in front of your door with your forks and when you’re taking off your wood you lay the wood across your forks so you do not have to pick it up twice this goes for anyone that is working on a trailer that is access to a skid steer if you were doing this this saves you a lot of time. And you do not have to pick this up twice

  • Don't you need that 7 pin connector for the trailer brakes? I think the 4 pin is just for the lights, but I could be wrong.

  • Your engineering and work ethic is incredible. 👍

  • I haven't read all the 5000+++ comments but if anyone was wondering why Andrew flipped the diamond plate over before cutting it the reason is it's a lot easier to make a good cut when your on the smooth side. Hope this helps someone that is just starting out in metal fab. Great video

  • That is NOT how you chain down equipment. It's pulling front to back not side to side. IF YOUR GOING TO MAKE INFO VIDEOS.. ... ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING! AND YOU HAVE.... TO.... HAVE......A PIPE... OR A LATCHING BAR ON THE LATCH STYLE BINDERS. IDIOT!

  • Dude, great job on the jet ski fix-up videos! I watched that one about a week ago, and I've now watched you build a castle, built a roof on top of that castle, buy several vehicles, make a driveway, dig a pool, fix a trailer, make a hot tub, used EVERY tool I've dreamed of owning, operated the coolest machinery, and live in an unbelievable setting. I need to adjust my goals, and build, create, and share more!

  • @01:03:20, the thing for the cord, is a 'Strain Relief'. It enables the cord to be moved around without stressing it against the edge of the outlet hole. Grab a bunch and keep them in a drawer box somewhere. I found this on the web.

  • Andrew, the wood will distribute the load across at least 3 cross members. The steel can not do that because it can bend. Granted you use mostly tracked vehicles, from what I can see, but 1/8" steel would not be the best thing to use in most cases, in general. That's why the deck was made of wood. Put a wheeled vehicle on the deck and see what I mean.

    Alex TAlex TOy oldin
    • @Andrew Camarata Exactly. I missed that for some reason. Excellent. Thank you for the info.

      Alex TAlex TOy oldin
    • Alex T yeah. It’s welded to all of them. That adds a ton of strength because it won’t stretch.

      Andrew CamarataAndrew CamarataOy oldin
    • @Andrew Camarata I'm glad it worked out. I wanted to ask if the steel was fastened to the cross members or not? Good job.

      Alex TAlex TOy oldin
    • Alex T The steel has more rigidity than the wood, a year later and I’m very happy with the steel deck, and I recommend it over a wood one.

  • Use paint cutter hardware for grounds.

    Alex TAlex TOy oldin
  • Seems somewhat ridiculous that they didn't extend the lower member back to the leafspring bracket, or to the end of the bed. Why leave a gap? Not engineered. Hatchet job.

  • 1:35:00 If you dont want to lose those bolts, use temporary bolt glue (medium strenght - these bolts can be opened again) at the lower 30% of the screw thread. Its sold by Loctite or Liqui Moly..! Its also sold as "threadlocker" at amazon...

IVe done before with a stick welder..It took so long and we lost on timing with it or rather underestimated the time. do to stick. Nothing to heavy just basic dumpsters? Also what miller welder do you have. I couldnbt get a close look

  • It's really unbelievable how much equipment and tools Andrew has for every job. Amazing he has all that at his age. The welder, the plasma cutter, the truck lift, huge work garage, awesome castle, etc, etc. The welding is something I kick myself a lot for because I never learned it. The kid knows how to fix everything and do everything . Plates even look better than wood. The paint gun. I have one, but not as good as Andrew's. I did call the metal plate to cover the wires in back to protect them when trailer drags. I'm sure most everyone did. I watched all of the video as I do all of his. Who needs television? I have UZworld TV, but I would rather watch UZworld videos like Andrew's and other different ones. I have UZworld tv on pause until October, and then I'll probably drop it. But I digress.
