  • steel window

    after done making my dp stand i started to build this four leaf steel window to replace the wire mesh that i barricade in our roughly finished house..

    granting the request of my wife..asikasuhin ko naman daw ang bahay

    materials:

    3 full length Z bar (sub standard) can't find the thickness of my choice
    3 9mm square bar
    1 I beam /bar
    1 T bar
    4 pairs of hinges and 2 pairs of window locks

    here is the main component of my build..the frame..it took me a couple of hours to build this flimsy frame..too thin every time i apply some spot welds the metal warped and started to move off to 90 degree angle..

    then cutting full length I beam for the cross member..
    sir rosy i believe that this is the material you use in your current project (saw horses)

    change position..i flipped the metal stock..the machine having difficulty cutting through this I beam..ganito pala dapat..

    [IMG][/IMG]

    after cutting the metal i have to trim each end of I beam like shown in the pic..

    to create a good weld joint..

      Re: steel window

      lol! pic taken by my wife..

      [IMG][/IMG]

      medyo matigas na ang frame but still shaky..

      [IMG][/IMG]

      then simultaneously cutting 9mm square bar..for speedy and accurate chopping process..

        Re: steel window

        then one by one i started to weld the square bar horizontal to the frame..

        [IMG][/IMG]

        [IMG][/IMG]

        layu layo ang pag lalatag ko ng square bar..i have a feeling that the frame will distort pag sunod sunod ang gagawin kong weld sa square bar..

          haha..no effect ang diskarte ko..notice the curve..

          [IMG][/IMG]

          i came up with a solution by putting wooden blocks in each corner then applied some pressure by my own body weight..

          [IMG][/IMG]

          yan diretso na..

          bintana naman..gamit na gamit ang grinder dito..

            Re: steel window

            four identical windows..almost

            [IMG][/IMG]

            i marked the center of the I beam with chalk..this will help me to align the window in the frame.

            aligning the window in the frame..

              Re: steel window

              hinges and locks that i will be using in my build..

              [IMG][/IMG]

              T bar..this will be weld in the middle section of window frame that divide the two glass in each frame thus it will give additional strength too..

                      Kung minsan bro pag na encounter ko na medyo hirap ang blade nilalagyan ko ng kahoy ( 2" x 2" or appropriate size ) sa me fence para medyo pa gilid ang pasok ng blade.

                        Yes bugel, you are right, that is the same material I used for the metal saw horse project, its a T-Bar, usually used for steel window casements. I just made use of those excess material from the steel casement window projects made in 2008, sayang kasi, kinakalawang na lang sa garahe.

                          @ sir jay..thanks sa tip..napansin ko lang pag sa malapad na kumakagat yung blade
                          Nahihirapan ng kainin yung bakal..napapansin ko yun pag wala ng spark na lumalabas.

                          @ sir rosy t-bar pala kala ko i beam..hehehe yun kasi ang sabi sa hardware eh..
