Default Weight sled I built

A member was asking about some easy do it yourself equipment. I built this sled basically to show that something can be built entirely out of everyday items that almost everyone has access too. After the fact I wish I would have done a simple strap setup for pulling the sled but the handle works well for some things too. I guess it depends on preference. It is a fairly simple design that could be switched aorund slightly to accomodate two spots for plates or even just a taller main center one.

Figured I would post up the sled I built today. Got a few hints from a picture I saw and I came up with htis:


Materials, roughly 30 dollars


Two 2x6
One 2x4
Two 1.5"x3' flat steel
Box of 3.5 inch coated deck screws
Package of 1.5" screws
One 1.5' diameter 6" Galvanized pipe
Floor Flange


Two 2x6 at 3'




I cut a 35 degree angle for mine, whatever works I guess.


Four 2x4 at 20"


2x6 at 20"


Mark your centers on two of the 2x4 peices and place your 20" 2x6 in the middle


Assemble with a second 2x6 on top of your frame.


Should look about like this


Cut your steel peices to length for the bottom of your runners for protection


Layout the holes and center punch them, doesnt have to be perfect I guess but Im picky


Drilled and countersunk to fit my chosen screws, attatch to bottom of runners.


Taped the rails to the side plates of the sled to keep them in place while pre drilling holes for the screws


Screws in place
