I am looking to build my own "wrought iron" fence. I have a welder friend that will help me assemble.
The design I was thinking was a basic flat top rail with square holes so that the pickets come through the top rail 4 inches.
The pickets would be 5/8 inch squares and the top rail should be 1/2" thick. So I need to be able to make a 5/8" x 5/8" square hole in 1/2 in inch steel.
What is the best way to do that, considering I need to make about 100 holes in 25 feet of steel.
I was going to hire the fence building work out but I am getting prices in the $75 a linar foot range for this fence and figure I could it for a lot cheaper.
