Need help with my rail...
Ok, so I found a metal rail on my local golf course at the end of april last year. Its the type of rail you would buy off a pro rail builders site..
looks like this:
/ | | | | | | \
In total its 12' long, but it is missing its legs..
sooo, problem = no legs for it to stand on..
so this past summer i made a wood frame so the rail would slide down onto it, but it is really sketchy/wobbly..
What do you guys think I should do.. Go to home depot, get them to cut the metal or something and find a way to weld it from somewhere.. which would cost a half descent amount of money..
I have no clue what to do, thanks for you help
Assuming it's a metal rail take it to a welder and tell them what you want done or get a friend or sonething to help you weld some legs on there, you probably want one at each end and one in the middle. The feet of the legs should be at least as long as the rail will be tall.
yea, sorry forgot to mention, it is all metal.
yea, if you have a friend who can weld, get some steel and have them weld the legs and supports on the side, or take it to a welding or fabrication shop near by and ask if they have some scrap laying around that they could weld on for legs, otherwise you'll have to buy the metal and then pay them a bit to weld it on.
Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim

Or if your in high school a metal shop or auto tech teacher might weld it for free or have extra metal lying around
if the pipe is the only thing wablng get some "great stuff" spray foam and put it between the gap of the wood and pipe. alot cheaper the buy more metal
