Anyone Have Any Experience Welding Iron Railings?


Hi, I've been fixing up a clients front steps and they have an old iron railing and they have asked me if I could build them something nicer. I have a little welding experience but I've never built anything like that before. Does anyone have any good advice or know of a site where I can learn quickly?

Thanks

Try finding a scrap yard that has iron railings, I have one by me that has a large assortment of used railings some nicer than others. I actually got two one time and modified them to fit a job. It would be alot easier to modify two of them to fit you needs than to make them from scratch. Just bring the old one with you and match up the rise as best as you can. Then modify it.

Welcome to the forum! If you use older railing and it has dividers or pickets, make sure is is up to code or you will be liable in the future. Just a handrail, fine. Check the size, height, distance past top and bottom step, returns, etc., here: http://www.stairways.org/pdf/2006%20...C%20SCREEN.pdf
Be safe, Gary
