theabortionatorMig is pretty easy. I feel like if you can figure out arc that's a cheap and easy way to get some solid welds. See if anyone you know has a welder, ask friends if their dads weld. Can get a cheap machine off craiglist. I almost bought a $400 lincoln in reno of fb classifieds yesterday.
Practice a bit. For backyard stuff it doesn't have to be killer. Anyone who has a few minutes to spare and it's horrible at everything could weld a usable backyard rail.
Go wide af on the feet. I was going to make some backyard features but never had the time to justify. Was thinking of going 3 feet maybe more on the feet. Low so you didn't waste speed and need a big jump, wide feet so no tippage. Make sure you wire brush and flap the surface. Clean the bullshit off there.
Might be able to rent a machine somewhere. Harbor freight has some solid deals on flap disks, grind/cut off wheels if you're not afraid of dying. I'm down to risk my life for a few $$$ personally. Go longer than you think you need to. Under 16' isn't worth it imo. Over 20' could easily be too long. I'd build it 14' min. Go low so takeoff can be low, speed, and less weird action as you pop.
If you fuck it up grind it out and re weld. Good luck!
