How to build a pulling sled - from ironaddicts.com

As you all know I am a fanatic about pulling sleds. One can be built for about 40 bucks. Here’s how:

Get a piece of 1/4 inch steel plate at the scrap yard that is 21 inches by 24 inches. You will also need about a 12-15 inch piece of heavy wall 2 inch pipe.

Have your welding/machine shop either bend the 24 inch end up 3 inches to make the lip, or cut off 3 inches and weld it on at an angle to make a lip.

Have them weld the pipe smack dab in the middle of the 21 x 21 section, and then drill or punch a hole in the CENTER upper portion of the lip.

My shop did all of the above for 25 bucks.

Paint it black, and have fun!

Here is a pic of mine. It just happens to weigh right on 45 lbs which is great for the mathematically challenged.
