I had a customer come over to have a new firescreen frame assembly fabbed for his fireplace as his original finally deteriorated. After looking at the material I have in stock, he chose 1.5" sq tube for the mounting frame & 1.5"W X .75"D rect. tube for the door frames. He had a drawing w/dimensions & to insure his dim. were exact, I gave him (2) pieces of 1.5" sq to take home, set in place, & take an exact measurement of the ID so I could make door frames for a nice snug fit. He came back the next day with a sketch of the dimen. he needed & locations for the hinges & mounting angles-to-wall. He also requested a 5"W hood w/2" frontal bend to use as a "hood". He gave me a deposit for material as required. I have a total of (5) hrs total fab/welding/grinding time in this project.
I cut all the material first, set in place, measured for precise dimen. as required, cut door frame angles, fit/clamped in place, & tacked to insure dimensions. The pics are in fabrication sequence so you can see start to finish. I welded 1.25"sq. X 1.5"L tube to the ends of the hood so they can be inserted into the 1.5"sq mount tube & set for height w/self-tap screws. I used 1/8" fine mesh woven hardware cloth for the screening. He will take the unit to the local powder coater to get a flat-black finish applied.
Here's the pics (10). Gonna need (2)posts to get them all on, so PLEASE give me a couple xtra minutes to get them all on. Don't hesitate to ask any ????. Thanks...
