solid steel, very heavy!
 
 

next job I'll come behind whoever installed this mess and replace it with a proper handrail. What a waste of money! Here's how a handrail installed the wrong way can ruin your steps. They wont have to worry about it again in their lifetime after I'm done with it.

 
 
 
 
This coming week I will install a handrail on both sides of these steps at this beautifulhouse in town.
 
 
Today 5/28/2015 I will volunteer at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington repairing some old wrought iron fence.

they keep putting it in and I keep ripping it out.
It doesn't take people very long to realize getting talked into this junk was a costly mistake. These are almost as bad as vynil handrails.

Below is the steel Don Quixote Sculpture I was commissioned to replace.
 
My latest piece, a steel sculpture of Don Quixote. This was a $900 ordered piece that will be mounted in a garden in the suburbs of Washington DC. in 3 weeks.
much fun to make and I cannot wait to do my next piece, any ideas?
 
I thoroughly enjoyed making this metal Don Quixote sculpture and am very anxious to start on another. If you have a character you would like to see in steel form standing in your garden send me a pic.

For 2 years I worked in Wilmington Delaware as a Level 2 NDT Tech, (non-destructive testing) for Industrial Metal Treating inspecting welds on pressure vessels and for welder certification.
 
My equipment
My primary welder/generator:  Millers Big Blue Pro 300 diesel
Also on my service truck and all brand new
Miller's largest MIG welder the Extreme 12VX, one of Miller's smallest MIG welders the 211 Autoset, Miller's smallest stick welder the 150S and Millers largest plasma cutter the Spectrum 2050.
 
all mounted on this 2008 F-350.
 
Here's work from my local competition, check this out.
 

This is the railing on the Redner's they build less that a mile from my house

LESS THAN A YEAR AGO.

 
This corner has already popped off and been glued back on. But now the post is rusted through.
 
 
this handrail blows freely with the wind less than a year after being built because the supporting posts are completely rotted away.
Less than a year after being installed this handrail must be ripped out and completely replaced. The ramp now also needs extensive work just to appear sturdy but concrete patches are never as strong as the original pour.
 
Not my work and his is why I do not drill large holes into anything outside.
 
I wonder how much taxpayer money was wasted when the decision was made to drill a huge hole into that big beautiful and expensive piece of stone. Can you imagine how much it would cost to have such a stone cut delivered and replaced then have the handrail replaced and anchored in a way that would not allow water in there that would eventually crack the stone? IMO big holes should not be drilled into stone.
 
And here is my daughters doctors office entrance right here by our house and another example of my local competition.
 
 
my latest visit---

I can't help it. Every time I go to my girls Rx his ramp is in worse shape. They often try to patch with more concrete but that is a senseless waste of time. At this point because of this faulty railing job the entire concrete ramp needs to be jackhammered, dug up, removed and replaced. It cracked all the way thru the entire width of the ramp at every post. And there are 2 ramps like this right next to one another.

This railing is about to fall over. An accident waiting to happen.
 
 
I welded all these metal studs together on Limestone Road right here in Delaware for Scheibel Construction of Maryland.
