Anyone have any thoughts on how to fabricate the ski portion of a tow behind sled for a snowmobile? We used to have a Fold-A Sled and it would be really easy to build one, but the ski part has me stumped.
I have also thought about one of those tubs used by framers to pull loads around the fields...

I've seen car hoods used straight as they come from the auto wreckers. No skiis.
Use a stamping press.
Otherwise just go and buy skis at the wreckers or your local snowmobile parts supplier. Much cheaper.
The problem is that I don't have a stamping press (you already knew that) and the skis on the average fold a sled are about 8 feet long
I'm thinking about using either an old pair of water skis or using some 1 1/2" square tube, two runners, 4-6 inches apart as the "skis"...heat and bend the tips up

Sorry, I guess I'm just not picturing it well today =-)
What's your profile shape?
Do you have access to a sheet metal brake?
Can you just use 4 smaller skis in place of 2?
