My first welding project! 1.5" frame with 5/8" square vertical pieces. I used an older Millermatic 250. 4" Square tubing is inside the block columns and attaches to an old satellite dish stand buried in side and in a cement footing. I had to measure for a 9" bias as the driveway is not level. I purchased the decorative pieces and spikes and had a stainless steel "W" cut for the center. Primed and painted with RustOleum brown. Attached to a heavy duty gate opener that is way overkill for a gate that is not that heavy. Next time I think I would use a 2" frame to give it a beefier look. Works like a charm!
I put it together on my flat cement driveway and carried it down after it was complete, as I did not have 220 volt electricity down at the gate area.
