Sam Salvati Posted April 11, 2010 Share Posted April 11, 2010 You guys keep asking me to see some of the stuff I make at work. Here is a railing me and the other guys at the shop have been working on for the past 5 or so months (not steadily, a couple days a week). I forged all the cap rail, all the knife/scythe shaped elements, and all the round bits on the end of the 3/8" bar, and made all the rings. The dots on the end of the 3/8" were all doubled over then forge welded, so they are 3/4" round and about 1/4"-3/8" thick, all the forged elements are 5/8ths round. The forged elements all have real knife geometries, thicker spines to the inside of the curves, edges to the outside. The lamb's tongue end was forged by my other boss Tim. The railing was designed by my boss Rachel, I forged everything to her designs. Everything is to code also (what a nightmare that was). all the 3/8" bar was dimpled wherever it criss crosses and was silver soldered by the other guys, everything else was Tig welded by the other guys Joe and Frank. It was a very fun and interesting, challenging as well! 9 panels in all, total of just under 31 feet. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
