Tow Bar Plans
DIY Universal Tow Bar
A universal DIY Tow Bar designed to be built and used by the homeowner with beginner to advanced metal fabrication skills.
I've bought mail order plans since I was eleven or twelve. First from magazine advertisements and later from the WEB. Most of the early sets looked as though the guy drew them using a pen and yellow lined paper while he was waiting for the coffee maker to finish. The later sets were mostly done using MSPaint® or some similar software and really weren't worth the cost of postage. I sincerely hope you will find my plans significantly better than what I described above.
The 37 page Tow Bar Construction Manual includes 27 illustrations, Table Of Contents and two Indices. The optional document package includes professional drawn, tabloid size [11” X 17”] CAD drawings of all piece part, sub-assembly and assembly prints in ANSI format. In addition, you can purchase full sized drilling templates printed on durable, heavy paper. If you're an experienced craftsman and if you have the right tools, you can probably make it over two weekends. If you’re a novice, it may require a bit more time.
