    I have some friends that are building a house and they wanted some custom doors inside there, here is what I did for them.

    I started out by using Torchmate CADs Scan and Trace Wizard function to import pictures from the internet. After a couple hours of editing and sizing to fit, these are the approved drawings from TMCAD.

    After the drawings were approved, and double checking measurements, I put my 11ga onto our 5x10 TMX, here in Reno, with Accumove 2 and a Lincoln Flexcut 125. Cutting with 60 amp consumables at 160 ipm here is what came off the table.

    After everything was cut out I took the door inserts to powder coating and got a dark gray put on.

    These screens will be the center panel of the doors, with a tempered glass behind, and wood frame. Unfortunately the glass order was delayed and we are still waiting to finish the project, so stay tuned.

    Hi. I am from Moscow. Now I live in the countryside in the village and tries to start making wrought iron doors. It seems, it turns out, but many questions color. Prompt, please, where I can read about the Oil Rubbed Bronze technology

    Спасибо, но я видел. Но мне нужно покрасить дверь, которая будет работать на улице, и это было прочным. Интересно здесь от 6-40:

    If interested, I can show my first experience when LECS RC do not mind. Welding has turned out well, but the color of bad.

    Use an Automotive clear coat... but that is about the extent of my knowledge on finishing.

    Mikhail,

    I would love to see what you have made. These doors I had powder coated since I needed a very specific color.

    Hello. I can use the powder coating, but I wonder Oil Rubbed Bronze technologies. The technology for small parts for internal use is on the Internet, but I'm interested in technology for painting the exterior elements.
    We need this technology for the paint:
