Rebar Gate

| | |

So I have been working on this gate for a while and it is finally finished. This thing is heavy! I used #14 rebar for the frame and 1/2" for the pickets and 3/16" for the wrapped ties. It is finished with a copper sulphate rust patina and an arylic matte clearcoat. The clients just love it and their neighbors are a little jealous. I want to thank this community for sharing ideas as you can see some of the design elements are borrowed from others and some are new. The bolt heads were drops from a local scrap yard that turned out to be tool steel that I could not drill so I had to plasma cut holes in them to weld a lag screw into them to make them work. Lots of extra time that I did not plan on :( In the picture of the snake you can see a reaction from the clear with the copper. It has been fixed and looks better now OOPS!

Hurricane Earl brushed the coast where I live and exposed material on the beach. I made him out of rebar a "T" shaped piece of fence post that was exposed from the wave action.

welding rebar w/ oxy-acetylene

Welding | |

Hello everybody-
I have found answers to my questions (thanks) but have one I can't seem to find. I have been making chairs out of rebar using a wire-feed welder but want to start using oxy-acetylene - just because I like fire... I have done some cutting and brazing but mostly just stuff I hang in the trees in the back yard, nothing I want to sit on. So, my question is what size tip should I use w/ my (medium-duty) outfit? And are there any tricks to welding rebar?
