This welding project was done last year at the New York Plaza in Pottstown PA. The welding job involved fabricating the treads for the steps which were rusted out, which I did in my shop, then transported them to the job site and installed.
Total Time for the Pottstown Welding Job
First I had to remove the old steps, which involved a sledge hammer and a grinder. The old steel steps were so rusted, that many of them came out very easily with the just the sledge hammer. I also had to rope off the area, and make sure no one would come through the door and get injured.
After taking measurements, I went back to the shop and began the fabrication.
For the treads I used 3/16″ steel. Once fabricated, I took the steel treads back to Pottstown and installed.
Total time for the job with fabrication, removal and installation: 2 days.
