    Re: Some everyday railings (and other cool stuff)

    Are there any measures taken to prevent the cables from rusting where they pass through?

    Penentrating oil, to stop any rusting

    Wow that’s it. I would have thought something more along the lines of plastic tube inserts that the cables pass through. Hmm never really looked to closely at a cable banister/railing system like that. I’ll make sure to scrutinize it the next time I see one in person.

    Very nice ,
    Did you use 1/19 or 7/17 Wire Lay ?

    I used 1x19 wire, it's stiffer than the 7x7, although I think the breaking strength of the 7x7 is actually quite a bit more.

    Is it ?
    Learn something everyday .
    We use 1/19 mainly because it does not stretch as much . With the advantage of it it looking and feeling a lot nicer .

    Got them all strapped in the truck, ready to go, Hopefully these curved panels fit tomorrow!

    That'll be a plus

    Me too, nothing is more satisfying then a curve project going into place properly, the first time!

    I was going to test fit them, but the job is 1.5 hours away, so I'll trust in my measurements lol

    Re: Some everyday railings (and other cool stuff)

    Well here we go, perfect fit, I was actually surprised

    I replaced railings that were hit by a big tree and smashed to smithereens

    I was able to use all the existing core drill holes.

    I was unsure the method I used to measure these rails, especially the curved ones, was accurate, but I guess it works.

    Great work.

    I wouldn't know where to begin trying to measure that and build it off-site.

    You need to charge more. $$

    Hey Phil.

    Very nice, as usual!

    Customer should be very pleased.

    Give us more details about how you measure the curves and slope so accurately. Also, how do you bend the channels and cap? Do you bend each piece then assemble? Seems impossible to bend the finished panel but it fits so good. What equipment do you use? Do you draw/make a template?

    Thank you for sharing.

    Re: Some everyday railings (and other cool stuff)

    When I get a chance I'll show you a pic of my measurements on my note pad, I took an angle measurement, using a piece of paper, I just folded it to match the angle of the railing, then I measured across the radius, and I measure from the center of the chord to the curve, kinda like this
    I then made the whole panel at the correct angle first, then heated up the top and bottom channel with the torch at intervals to bend the right radius

    Nice job. Really impressive using the existing holes.

    What hole filler do you use? Epoxy, cement

    It's an anchoring cement called "quick rok"

    It's the best stuff I've ever used, sets up very quickly, pours very smoothly, it's great

    Must be an east coast thing. I don't see it listed any where near the west coast.

    You can get it anywhere in the United States.
    If you have the ability to ask for it.

    It is made in California.
