    Good stuff I like the pictures and description painted the picture beautifully. How many are you building? Big contract? I hate welding galvanized.

              The co. i work for does not fabricate the signs or the mounts they are hired for the install only.Then they sub me in for the steel part.They needed a certified welder to do that part of the work plus they don,t weld.

                Adams Welding, You need to be care full of this.

                Some fabricating friends of mine did some big highway sign posts out of pipe that was approximately 12" diameter and they spliced one of the pipes together, ground the welds smooth and sent them out to be galvanized, The DOT would not accept the posts because they were spliced. ( The galvanized showed the weld )

                This happened about 15 years ago.
