Have an old totally stripped frame that the ramp has been butchered up.

Is there someway to rebuild / buildup the ramp, use a barrel with a ramp, or should the frame just be destroyed the rest of the way.

If rebuild, could I perform the repairs or would be better to find a smith? How difficult is setting up a new barrel with a ramp. Could this be done with tools around the house or is a milling machine required?

Thank you for your time.

George Smith at EGW can weld up and recut the ramp.
Or you can have an integral ramp barrel put in. It is a milling machine job, and a precise one at that.
I think it is a job for a pro, not only to do the work but to look at the rest of the frame and decide if it is worth the trouble and expense. But I am not a DIY type of guy.
