Yes... it has simple welding step a friend can do for you..
And looks cool like a Spike barely touching a beam and
then any kind of fun LED lantern makes the illusion perfect.
I'm making one more for my friend..
Step 1: What You Need
An Iron Railroad Spike
A 3/8" Lag Bolt.. I had a lag eye
HAND TOOLS :
A Hack Saw $ 3.99 each
Metal 24TPI ( Teeth Per Inch ) Hacksaw Blades $5.99 PACK OF 10.
An 8" flat Metal File $1.99 each
A Wire Brush $1.49 each
A 3/8" Spade Bit under $1.50
A 6" or bigger Adjustable Wrench under $4.00
If you don't have a welder, ask a friend or have a local shop do it for you.
This is a quick weld job and should be bottom dollar by a welding shop.
Step 2: Cut and Prep the Lag Screw
and cut the Lag bolt about a 1/4" above the threads..
Now take a file to both sides of the stub forming it to a flat point as the fifth and sixth pictures show.
This prepares the Lag screw for easy welding..
Step 3: PREPARE THE RAILROAD SPIKE TIP
Simply cut the V into it using the hacksaw and maybe use the file to adjust a fit into it.
This makes the welding a snap for anyone.
