Since I had used up the last good lengths of the 4" sq tubing that I had I needed to come up with something for the stair stringers I have a good supply for now of angle iron to make the risers and tread supports out of. I do have a couple sticks of 4x4x3/8" tubing but I have other plans for it and didn't want to cut it up. This was when I thought of the side rails of the upper deck I removed from a trailer to use the frame portion as the base of my brick crane.
I had saved the rails thinking I would come up with a great application for them someday
It looks like I found it
The stairway is coming along nicely the upper has the risers installed on the stringers and only have to weld in tread edge support angles then that part is done until I get around to cutting the treads out of the 2x12 oak and pine planks that I have. If I had enough oak I wouldn't bother with edge supports but the angles will also give a good place to mount toe kick plates should I decide to fully enclose the stairway
The bottom section is complete I have the base anchors driven in the ground a couple feet and welded to it now I need to weld it to the landing is all
As you can see it still works. I have had thoughts of adding a rectifier and choke along with a fine adjustment variac like what is in a round top AC/DC machine but then I think why bother I have a 300 amp Airco DC machine it is just still packed away
"...brought in on a hook...". I'm guessing that means tractor with sleeper came in with the tow rig?
Spectacular in my book, no question.
Reminds me of a former garage turned concert venue in Kansas City. They gutted interior and walls, the new sides are garage style sectional (overhead) glass doors. Closed, it's warm in winter, fully open rest of the year.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
