    Default The Correct Answer is "Yes Dear"

    After my wife encourged me to purchase a new welder 2 1/2 years ago, I really had no choice, when she asked me to fabricate a new wrought iron railing for the side of the steps. Attached are some pictures:

    Nice work. Also, very good idea considering where you live.

    Nice work.


    Btw, my wife encouraged me to spend the money to get a machine too.
    I have to build stuff for her now, but it's fun -- welding is welding I guess.

    Don, Nice work on the railing. I like the way you did the lambs tounge end.

    I've done a few similar to that but have always wondered about something. I use the concrete expansion bolts like the ones shown and they are very secure but I wonder about corrosion and weakening due to moisture going down in the hole with the bolt. I guess they will last a long time since they are zinc plated. Has anyone experienced how long they will last before rusting out?

    We used the zinc plated at work and in a couple years they were all rusted from salt and moisture. We switched to and have been using stainless and we can still crank them in and out after about 10 years.
