Heavy-Built Steel Rail Fence
Arges, who calls himself "The Pipe King," offers materials for the "ultimate" corral or fence.
The rails are made from 9-ft. lengths of 2 by 5-in. rectangular tubing. "They were originally used for shelving in manufacturing plants, and come with 2-in. angle iron on the ends that can be used to attach them to posts," he says. He has posts made of the same tubing.
"Each rails weighs about 45 lbs., but the fencing is easy to put up," he says.
"It makes excellent fencing for cattle, horses, bufalo, deer or elk," he says. "It's sturdier and will last longer than some of those no-paint plastic fences you see around pastures. And it costs about the same."
Arges says all his stock is primer coated. A 9 ft. section with a post and three rails sells for $36, or $4 per foot. A section with four rails is $45, or $5 per foot. Heavy duty self tapping screws needed for assembly are provided.
