Who does the state housing authority go to for handrails? Graydie Welding because I guarantee my work for life. Here’s an example of a bad handrail installation and how much damage it caused. Along with the cost of the new handrail I installed today how much would it be to remove and replace that huge granite slab?
Dont let anyone bore big holes in your brick block stone or conrete.
 

Brian, I just wanted to thank you for giving my disabled brother some of his independence back. You did an amazing job on the railing at ------------- in Milford and I can't thank you enough. It is refreshing to find such quality work especially with such a high quality human being. My father was a well respected mechanic and he taught me to respect those that have skill. You sir, have certainly gained my respect.
Thank you from the Mallard and Gallo families!

After I do a job and get paid by a happy customer I don't normally come back and add onto that job for no charge. But this old timer is not only a retired police lieutenant but also Italian and he's just trying to do the best for his wife so he gets my full cooperation.

Working at the postal inspectors shooting range today. I have no idea who built and installed these handrails and although they look good they have already cracked the concrete in a dozen spots.

3 years ago...
 
It was 3 years ago I spent a week volunteering with artist Robert Stackhouse rebuilding his brass sculpture The Delaware Passage at The Copeland Sculpture Garden located on the grounds of The Delaware Art Museum. This was my first time brazing brass and it worked out fantastic!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Some recent welding at a shooting range. Very interesting.
 
Sold $80, flower box for a deck.
 
Here are some solid steel flower garden borders. These are for those take their gardening seriously as they are about half the price of a handrail the same length.
 
 
 
 
 

12 feet tall. This will make a great climbing rose trellis. It needs a tight climber so it will maintain the cross shape in flower. $200.

I did some volunteer work up at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington today.
People keep ripping the perimeter fence apart so they can cut thru the cemetery instead of walking around.
 
Here's more aluminum railing headed for the scrap yard. People keep putting it in and I keep ripping it out. Installing this of aluminum handrail and railing is a mistake people only make once.

These crosses are about 16 inches. $40 each.
