Cool Welding Projects You Can Do At Home
2. Model vehicles
They’re usually pretty small, so although they might be cheap to make, the level of detail and accuracy which you’ll need will require some thought and attention. In order to reach the really keen buyers who are willing to pay for this sort of thing, your work will need to be of good quality; if you make a non-descript car or airplane there will still be a market for it, but you won’t be able to charge anywhere near as much.
One way to increase the amount you charge is to use a metal which can be painted easily. Selling these items as a kit which the buyer can decorate themselves will make them even more appealing.
1. Fences and gates
Large fences and gates are probably the items on this list for which you can charge the highest price, but they’re also some of the most complex things you can make. In order to make an effective fence or gate you’ll need to get the measurements absolutely perfect, so there’s no room for error. In addition, your welding skills will need to be top-notch if you hope to create anything even vaguely pretty or creative.
When you start out, you’ll find that the materials you need to make fences and gates are fairly expensive, but if you do a good job you’ll reap the rewards in your profit margin. They’ll also take much longer to make than some of the smaller objects you could go for (which means your profit will be slow in coming) but you’ll receive larger lump sums in return.
One of the best things about making fences and gates is that they can be made to order for both businesses and private homes. Private homes looking for security from a sturdy metal gate are usually willing to spend a little more for the privilege; likewise, businesses usually have deep pockets when it comes to keeping their assets safe. Play into both these markets to create bespoke, custom-made fences and gates, and you’ll soon be rolling in it!
