    Cool Railing job.

    This is what i have been doing at work for the last few weeks. Normally we make these work platforms and they have 2x2 sq tube posts and welded cross bars from 1 1/2" tubing. This batch of platforms has 1 5/8" formed railing with cross rails that need coped. So i have like 390 rail sections to fit and tack together for the welders. Plus they have pockets that the rails sit in and need to all be removable. I have found the quickest way to cope the 1 5/8" tube is with a grinder and 36 grit sanding disc. Like 30 seconds per end. Just measure between the uprights and add 1/2". Then scribe a line 1/4" from the tube end and grind to the line while feathering to the center of the tube then roll the tube 180 degrees and do the other side. Piece of cake...Bob

    Cool

    We have an iron worker and the company bought notching dies for it. But in the 8 weeks its going to take to fab up these platforms the hole punching station will be down because thats where the notcher goes. Plus the iron worker is a long way from my bench and its quicker for me to grind as i have been doing. No if the iron worker was right next to me i would use it, but we still can't punch holes..Bob

    Excellent craftsmanship.

    To heck with the tubing notcher - your technique sounds faster and looks fantastic when finished.

    We don't have one. There are 10 different ways to do this job for sure and some are better than others and i am just showing how to do it minus the notchers most people don't have..Bob
