Silver Lake Fabrication offers custom fabrication, welding, and metal repair
services. We also have CNC plasma cutting services and light machining services available. We do
TIG and MIG welding of steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, and can weld anything from soda cans
to heavy plate. The purpose of this page is to show some of our work outside of our product line.
To see examples of some custom projects we have completed, along with repairs, and some cool
pictures we've taken of our work throughout the years, please check out the pictures and info
TRUCK PLOW FRAME MOUNT
STAINLESS GRILL GUARD
This grill guard was made for a local customer who wanted a nice looking piece that was easily
removable when he wanted to mount his plow back on the truck for the winter. The whole assembly
is made of 0.120" wall 1.5" square stainless steel tube and then polished. This custom brush
guard is fully tig welded and bolts onto the trucks's Fisher snow plow mounting bracket.
Installation and removal takes about 5 minutes.
MOTORCYCLE TIRE MANUAL BEAD
Built for a local motorcycle technician, this adjustable motorcycle and ATV tire bead breaker
is super simple to use and with work with ATV tire up to about a foot wide. The whole assembly is
TIG welded and we used .120" wall 1.25" square steel tube, along with .120" wall 1.25" round tube
and a piece of 1"-5 Acme threaded rod and nut for the tire width adjustment. The technician who
uses this tool has found it to be very handy.
WASTE WATER PUMP LIFT BRACKET
A local municipality needed a specialized lift bracket system for a gray water pump used at
their waster water treatment plant. With a couple of quick drawings, we were able to wip up this
set of lift brackets to make their worker's lives a little easier. The brackets are TIG welded
with the plates being machined from 1/2" and 1/4" steel plate. The lift loops are formed pieces
of 1/2" steel round stock.
ULTRA-LIGHT RECREATIONAL RAIL
A prototye version of a much updated design that we will soon be offering, this super light-
weight recreational rail road car is made out of aluminum and runs on HDPE wheels. The version
that is currently in the works has a fully welded frame, smaller diameter wheels for stability,
and will come with provisions for a 5 HP engine. If interested in this super light-weight
"Speeder" type vehicle, please contact us.
FARM TRAILER FRONT AXLE
Built to replace a rusted out hay wagon trailer for a local farm, this heavy-duty axle
assembly used the stock spindles and had provisions for a self-leveling pivot mount.
MINI-MOTARD MOTORCYCLE BATTERY
Due to the limited space in this miniature motorcyce, we welded the fabricated aluminum box
right onto the inside of the frame. This allowed for a light weight battery to be mounted to
power lights for a street use conversion.
BANDSAW BLADE CLEANING STAND
Built for a local blade and tool sharpening company, this stand is made to hold bandsaw blades
in place to allow quick cleaning operations. The stand is adjustable for different length blades
and has been in service for years now.
