Default Stainless steel handrail job

Hey y'all!! We have had this job for a month or so and been workin' it on occasion but got serious 'bout it today. We built the stairs 2-3 months back and been dickerin with 'em on the kind of rail and the finishes they want. We wound up going with a sandblasted, satin look. I don't have the sample sandblasted pce but I'll post a pic of that in a day or so. I'll find the stair install pics too as it was pretty fun to do Thanks for the look---

WOW EH!!!! very nice and of course we need more pictures.

that is really expensive stuff you are working with, that ship ran aground in the UK and it had 1000 tons of nickel on it and the stock market went up. nickel went up a dollar in a day and all future mining companies up here the stocks all went up. so when you go to bill the customer make sure you bill him todays price on the SS. it is a tough market for the welders who stock SS.

Default Your Work

Hey Tek,

Nice Work...

Thanks for the pictures.. Your Stairs, Landings and Bracings look similar to the way I would fabricate....
You don't usually see too many Stainless-Railings....Only for the simple reason is that people are too cheap to pay for them... I would gladly spend
more time on them if I had the orders... Who is the customer if I may ask...

Brian

readywelder, thanks. They will be more fun as the job progresses, I'm sure ...The cust. is a couple of guys,local, that started out 'bout ten years ago as a landscaping enterprize and have been real successful. They are building this building to use some as office and to rent most of it out. I got to do all the red iron in it and there is a bunch more to go. Bob and Paul, hence B.P. Landscaping---We've built 'bout a dozen trailers for them and fixed many a mower
