A big tall H beam swing set frame.

Postby BigBill » Mon Sep 02, 2019 5:25 pm

Since I have the H beam it’s time to build a giant swing set frame to lift my f cub with three or more electric chain hoists. I’m figuring using the hoists to lift the front bolster with engine, the driveshaft tunnel, and the tranny assembly with finals. I just need to make it long enough so it can be taken apart and assemble the tractor.

I have another job on the back burner my 99 tj wrangler sport Jeep needs a frame repair. The body needs to come off the frame and a new frame using rectangular steel for the frame rails and 1/4” plate for the control arm brackets. Add in the snowplow brackets. I’m the orginal owner and ordered it with all the hd goodies figuring I’ll plow snow when it gets old enough. The time has arrived.

Even pick up my cub cadets.

One swing set a frame size fits all?

Any thoughts?

I purchased a magnetic based drill to drill and bolt together the swing frame.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Bill, I built one a few years ago. Very handy for splitting a cub. Strap under the engine, another under the torque tube, and splitting and putting it back together, are easy.

Probably dumb question but I am serious. Is an H beam an I beam laying on it's side? Is this just a different name for the same thing or is there some advantage to turning it so it makes a trough?

Jeff, an I beam is used as a beam while an H beam is intend to be used as a column (stood upright).
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I, H and W describe the shape of the beam. I beam sections have a tall web with narrow flanges at top and bottom, and so look like a capital I. H beams are typically as wide as they are tall, and W beams have wide flanges, though not as wide as H beams. Any of those shapes could have uses as beams (horizontal) or columns (vertical).

Sorta got it. It is discouraging when you go to Wikipedia and get....

This article's factual accuracy is disputed. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. Please help to ensure that disputed statements are reliably sourced.

I guess they're not sure either.

You know it's kinda odd that I was just discussing the Euler-Bernoulli beam equation at lunch today..... :D :lol:

The Euler-Bernoulli beam equation shows that the I-shaped section is a very efficient form for carrying both bending and shear loads in the plane of the web. On the other hand, the cross-section has a reduced capacity in the transverse direction, and is also inefficient in carrying torsion, for which hollow structural sections are often preferred.

I think I'll stick with wood. (Sorry, couldn't resist the pun :roll: )

I do not want to get to technical, but I have installed a lot overhead conveyors. the beam the trolleys rides on was called Mono Rail.

Note the top and bottom flanges compared to a I beam'
