I doesn’t matter if you’re welding iron railings, garden gates, or anything.
If you’re measurements are not perfect, the entire project can end up being a complete disaster.
But what do you do if you just landed big iron railing job, and you don’t have anyone to help you pull measurements? Sometimes it’s hard enough measuring for the small jobs by yourself.
Nothing will bruise your ego more than discovering on install day that you have to load everything back to the shop, and start from scratch because you pulled just one measurement wrong.
Trust me. I know the feeling well. It sucks. A LOT.
That’s why I came up with this sweet method to ensure I never have to feel like a jackass in front of a railing client again. At least not from measuring wrong, anyway. 😉
In this video clip, taken straight from the Iron Railings 101 course, you’re going to learn the easiest (and fastest) way to pull perfect measurements EVERY time by yourself or with a partner.

What’s Your Favorite Jig?
Have you made your own jigs to make your welding and measuring life easier? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
We all want to make our welding jobs easier, right?
That’s why so many welders use pre-punched channel when building iron railings.
If you’re new to welding or fabricating iron railings, pre-punched channel is regular steel channel with either round or square holes punched in the center. They come this way directly from the steel mill and come in various sizes to suit small railings to large fences.
Using pre-punched channel will save you a TON of time in measuring, cutting and welding up your railing project, but…
…it can quickly turn into a huge expensive disaster if you don’t follow these crucial steps.
In this quick video you’ll learn how to avoid disaster and make your life easier in the shop.
