Ideas for angle iron

    I just picked up 2 3.2 metre lengths of 6x50x50 angle steel. Were advertised as 8.5mm and I stupidly didn't check. £20 for both wasn't too bad though.
    I am writing to ask any advice what I could build with them that would sell quick.
    Using them for indoor furniture would be a waste as they are so strong.
    Maybe an outdoor bench or table? I am a keen woodworker as well so could integrate them into a project somehow.
    Many thanks
    Will

    Thanks for the ideas all.
    probably wont make the metal folder as I imagine the market is rather small for it.
    Hoping to be able to make some money from my tool investment haha

    That was a good price. Any chance of a link to where you got it? If I may be cheeky.

    I think that the bender is the best thing you can make with
    Also a mini tractor but is little bit complex

    I was in a cafe in Bridgnorth yesterday, some cool tables made from angle iron. Just four legs, with an upside down frame welded on top, and four gnarled, weathered, planks laid in the top. Very interesting look.

    Here’s an angle iron and plank table I built several years ago, fitted perfectly into our Spanish style house in the Philippines, but no use in a small 3 bed semi.... :vsad:

    Pretty sure if you stick it in the for sale section of the forum it'll be gone in about 10 minutes even with a good mark up on what you paid.
