    replied to OT- Cold galvanising

For stuff like brick angle and other galvanized steel we use rustoleum or walter cold galvanized and it works good for painting the welds/the application. It works better if the weld is still warm when your...

    JET ROD!!!!

    I loved using 7024. We used to use it for welding joists/trusses,column base plates or anything that we wanted welded fast that was in the flat position. Too bad though were not allowed to use it in structural work. We got 3/4 of the way through welding the joists/ trusses...

  • Im a little suprised that they didnt call for a cap on the top of the column... I know you put a filler strip in but man 1" is a pretty big gap to fill. IMO it mat have been quicker to cut a cap weld it on and then weld the support to your capped column... but if thats what the engineer calls...

Oh and dont forget about gst or pst. ( government...

    to every one no offence taken. Im seeing now that when it comes to certification and qualifications it all depends on the company you work for, type of work you do, where you are etc, etc, etc. I agree the education provided by an apprenticeship would be invaluable. I guess it all depends on your circumstances....

    replied to Ironworkers
    as far as i know all ironrworkers do is structural steel. or thats all i do. The closest thing ive seen my company do to pipe or is handrails, round and square tube column splices and i guess the closest of them all that ive seen is welding piles that they drive into the ground. but there also are exeptions...
