    Red face ornamental iron info

    Hi, new member here.
    I was just wondering if anyone can suggest any books on building ornamental iron projects? I have googled and only seem to come up with manufacturers who want to sell products. I am a 35 year welder and want to try ornamental as I usually do structural buildings. New side hobby.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Try Jansen or Kings metals

    Kings has a very good selection of metal working, design, and welding books. Also try Jansen iron. With luck you may be able to download a book of designs from one of them. Jansen has 1 business in the Los Angeles area. Kings is bigger and has 3 branches.

    Default Tripple S steel

    Triple S steel has three branches in the US and has catalogs, books and all kinds of shapes of steel already to be included in your design. Their main address is
    Triple S Steel Supply
    Po Box 21119
    Houston Tx 77226
    Their supply store here in Knoxville, Tn. has been very willing to sell small amounts and to cut them to fit pickup truck if needed. Don't know about shipment to Canada but their catalog is very full with over 330 pages of equipment and premfg shapes, baskets, spindles, scrolls and castings.
