How I Did It: Handrail

From: Bryan Doig of Battleford, Saskatchewan, Canada

I have been using Lincoln products for many years. My Dad taught me the basics of welding on the farm using a tractor powered generator welder many years ago.

I built this handrail using 1 x 1 inch square tubing, 3/8 inch solid square bar and 112 circles cut from 3-1/2 inch (diameter) x 3/16 inch pipe. My daughter designed the project.

I used a Lincoln MIG-Pak® 15 (current model is Easy-MIG™ 180) wire feeder welder and a Lincoln AC-225C (current model is AC-225) stick welder — both fine products — for the project.

The handrail receives many oohs and aahs when guests arrive at the door.

These project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric® Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
