    Not trying to rain on your parade, but at $58,000 that works out to about $12 per foot. Just seems too cheap to me for your time and material.

    Snackers,
    Welcome to the board Don't worry, he's fast!!! He'll put up 10' /hr, so that'll be $120/hr!!! Well, with welding time, labor help and all that, I'm sure he's got if figured out. This is going to be good! I'm going to learn a LOT on this project!!!

    I'm sure he has a claws in his signed contract about incidentals and cost over runs and changing plans part or half way through the job.Even add ons are subject to a re-quotation on the current job.I trust he knows what he is doing.He said that he has done work for this place before.So I don't think he will have a problem.But then???

    here it is, i found matls at 60 cents/foot on the square tube and 12 cents/foot on the square stock, after ordering all that i need plus 15% it came out to 9,000 bucks, roughly. sandblast and powder coat will be done by a local shop under contract for $3,000. $1,000 for consumables(wire, rods, band saw blades, etc...)$1,000 for fuel for haul and engine drives. $2,500 for the general contractor to do the concrete work. $500 for latches and springs. and roughly $12,000 for help. i will be doing gang cuts with a band saw to up production and keep a clean cut. i have a 7 x 22 foot table and i will make a fixture to "stack pieces in and weld 'em up". i can and will do most of this by myself. the only help i will need is when removing sections of the old rail, and aligning up the new ones. correct me if i am wrong, but that leaves about 20,000 to profit and 10,000 to play with. it may be cheap as was posted earlier, but that is not a bad click for a little side job. and yes i do have a clause for change of design and add-ons, and what not. i have a lawyer friend that helps me out a bunch with contracts. the steel will make a showing next friday. they will deliver to me, same as the lws.
