    Double swing Stair Gate

    Coming very very soon!

    A DIY project as requested by swmbo of a small double swing gate to prevent our dogs from freely roaming around down the property at nights.
    She wanted them dogs always nearby the house to keep guard and to keep them safe too.

    Thanks guys,

    The bottom parts of the posts were bolted to the concrete flooring and then the top of the right post was just welded
    to an existing metal support. The other one at the left side was screwed to the concrete beam using a plug.

    As I bend the square bar, I'd apply vise grips here and there as the thick plate is also rotated and clamped onto the welding table.
    As I am done bending, I would check it with my original design on paper to see if its getting the right bend or form I was trying to achieve.




    Thanks for viewing the posts and 'till the next when I am finished with the other frame.

    And for the larger scrolls, also made a jig with some bended square bars welded on the metal plate.

    Then also made a temporary jig as the scroll bends get bigger.
    On a piece of thick plate, I bent and welded scrap pieces of square bars and a scrap steel caster.








    And the finished scroll.

    And for the scrolls and how I manage to finish them, the larger ones up to the smaller bends.










    A jig that I usually use and simply attach it to the bench vise for smaller bends.

    Back to the welding table. Then started the clean ups, grinding the excess weld beads with my 5" angle grinder and then finishing up
    with the smaller 4" grinders.








    After all the grinding, I'll apply for the meantime this rust converter or remover to protect the metal/steel while I work on the next frame.

    Installed the upper scroll to see how it fits but decided to weld it already on the main frame.






    Well I suppose this is how this gate will look when unpainted.
