leafspring

We ate dinner last night in Provo, stopped to get gas and discovered that out passenger side leaf spring is broken. The problem last week was that all the bushings were worn out. So now that all the bushings have been fixed/reinforced, something else had to go. Now we’re trying to find out if we can get a new leaf spring. Fingers crossed. #trailerproblems #brokenleafspring #leafspring #cargomate #trailer #enclosedtrailer #tourproblems (at State Trailer - RV & Outdoor Supply)

I decided I wanted to do some #blacksmith #work, but I didn’t have an #anvil. Soooo…. I decided to #build a #fresh #new one. the #body is #railroad, the #base is a tie plate, the #horn and step block are made from an old #tractortrailer #leafspring. It was also a good #practice for #weave #welding with my #tigwelder, so that was fun too. #handmade #steel #metal #blacksmithing #welding #madeinamerica Am I proud of myself? Hell yes I am!
