We got lucky yesterday. I needed some "L" shaped rods (bent rebar) welded to a piece of plate steel. This would be secured to a 30cm X 30cm x 50 cm deep foundation, to serve as the base for a metal tower that will support two internet antennas. One antenna will be the omnidirectional antenna for my Cootel modem / router; the other one of my microwave TP-Link CPE-510 link antennas. That one will send / receive the signal for our Metfone connection, to the other CPE-510, located at the highway.
Anyway, this guy had multiple welders AND an oxy-acetylene torch on site. Okay, so, that's not so overly exciting. But, here is the kicker. He actually knew how to use them. Not to mention, he actually used soapstone to mark the burn lines. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with his work.
He cut a 30 cm x 30 cm section from a piece of plate steel, as straight and square as an arrow. He then cut 4 pieces of rebar, each bent in the shape of a capital letter "L". After, he welded each piece of rebar to the bottom of the plate, that will be immersed into the concrete form, permanently anchoring the plate to it. Total cost, $3.50 US.
Pictures to come. We had to return to the city to take her mom to the doctor for a check up. She recently broke her arm and had to return to see the doctor. I will get the images as soon as possible and post them in this thread.
