Any ideas would be welcome.
So show me what you've made with sucker rod and give me some ideas... I've got the steel, now I need to figure out what to do with it :cool:

I also use the male joint ends to make hardy tooling with for my anvils where I can forge it down to fit in the hardy.

What is sucker rod?
This link gives specs for one brand of sucker rod. In the picture shown you are looking at the male end of the rod. This link was shared by IFI member Irnsrgn, one night in the chat room, that I bookmarked. So Thanks Irnsrgn.
To answer your question, It is used link the above ground mechanical pump rig to the underground pump unit. This pumps are used to pump oil and etc. from bottom of a well.
Nos, Look on the flats of the square part of the ends, to see what kind of steel your rod is.
Let your imagination be your guide as to what make with your material.
If you have time to kill work it to death!!!

Thank you everyone for the input!
A special thanks to Tald the dead and LarryM for the charts.
I'll have to make my cousin a special gift for giving me all this steel... I suppose I could make him a "Sucker Sword" lol
I'm thinking of making some sort of tripod "lowering" device for turkey frying for Thanksgiving. We usually fry about 6-7 turkeys and about 4 chickens for friends and family at Thanksgiving. My arm sure gets tired quickly from slowly lowering each bird into the oil (lowering slowly prevents any overflow or splatter). Last year I used the "boom" lift I had on the bed of my work truck (you might be a redneck if... )and it worked pretty well. I'll post pic's of some of the things I make.
Thanks again everyone
