I'm a first year welding student and my dads a general contractor who mostly works on renovations. He has a customer who needs a "wrought" iron railing built and he said that I could build it. For the front of the house the customer wants the railing to come down (30 degree slope, go straight and as soon as it does so it wraps around a 4" diameter bend). The problem is I dont know if this would even work with such a sharp bend. Even if I got it red hot, the railing has a certain profile which I think would get messed up. Please see the first atached picture and tell me what you think.
For the rest of the railings the customer wants a design like the second picture. The only way I could come up with to make the pickets would be to bend each one seperatly into a cane shape and cut the ends so each one flows into the next, and the just weld them togethor. You can see what I mean at the bottom of the 2nd picture. What do you guys think of this idea, or do you have any better ones?
I could use a pretty quick answer on this one (especially the first question), because I got till wednesday to know if I'm going to be able to build this thing or not. There is another guy who plans on going to the jobsite to take measurements on wednesday so I need to know before then so we can tell him not to come out. Any help would be greatly appreciated .
