Imagine my surprise to find an old friend managing the local Keen Gas when I moved here 4 years ago.
I can always count on Paul for in stock equipment as well as good welding advice.
My primary welder/generator. Millers Big Blue Pro 300 diesel.
Also on my service truck and brand all new
Millers largest MIG welder the Extreme 12VX, one of Millers smallest MIG wrelders, the 211 Autoset, Millers smallest stick welder the 150S and Millers largest plasma cutter the Spectrum 2050.
and they are all mounted on this 2008 F-350.
I had a service bed installed and modified the suspension to accommodate the weight.

Here's my latest handrail job.
I fabricated, installed and painted this handrail in 4 hours for $80/ft.
The bottom posts are driven deep and then set in concrete and the top posts are welded to plates that are bolted into the existing concrete pad.
Today's work 4/26/2013- simple handrails

Look at what I saw today! An entire neighborhood with the worst handrails I have ever seen in my life! Here's a good example of what happens when you hire someone who cannot provide examples of good work and references.
Whoever installed these not only took every shortcut in the business but obviously failed to even bring a level to the scene of this crime. They used the wrong pieces and anchored it the wrong way then used house paint on metal. The anchors are now rotted away so the handrails have become a serious danger to the residents. Someone is going to get hurt here for sure. Many of these railing are no longer even connected.
FYI, these handrails are on Widner Lane in Smyrna, Delaware as well as the adjoining streets.
Today's work, double window guard $600.
Really looks great… love the spikes and staggered look. Thanks again. Jim M.
another happy customer!

It was then auctioned and the winning bidder donated it to the centers headquarters on Stanton Ogletown Rd. Here it is with the Christiana Hospital in the background.
made these today for a local contractor.

Want a beautiful pool fence that will last hundreds of years? I made these solid steel window guards but they could just as easily be pool fence. I do not like the hollow square tube fence I see so much as it's so incredibly weak I can rip it down with my bare hands. Should fence that flimsy even be around a pool? Makes as much sense as a wooden fire escape.
This customer chose this centerpiece. There are hundreds of centerpieces at King Metals. I do not mark up material from King so the price you see on their web site is the price you pay.
Todays work 2/13/2013 for a Delaware Realtor
Next I will remove that very thin weak railing on the porch above and replace it with solid steel.
The difference between my railing on the left and the junk on the right is 250 years at least.
These are my daughters so far. I can do a profiles sculpture like this for around $100, depending on things like material and size. These are going to make great personal gifts. I'll do my daughters every years now and run them down a wall together so you can see them age. I wish I started when they were born!

This is a handrail, pipe railing I did in Pennsylvania 80 miles from my house. I did this by myself and in 3 8 hour days.
" Brian thanks for the for good work and attention to detail!"

I fabricated and installed this fire escape for a Delaware State Trooper. It was located inside the Wilmington city limits so that means it had to be inspected before an occupance permit could be issued for the structure. I'm happy to say it passed with flying colors and this was my first big job. I had no shop so I had to fabricate it on site. I also had to negotiate my way around a live power line with little insulation. This job worked out to $3000 for 2 landings and 2 sets of steps all with handrails.
How bout a solid steel flower sculpture on a post or pole flowing down.
I can make these to mount on existing driveway pillars.
Paint to match your house!
I can make a flower sculpture to wrap around a window or door.
I could also cover the window for security.
Just imagine how a yard would look wrapped in these flower sculptures spaced every 8 feet.
A customer gave me this pic as a guide and had me make this for a wedding. I made a stand so it could set upright on a table.
