I’m working on an art project to turn an old basketball pole into a flower. I need to weld two large steel “leaves” to the pole. I would be happy to hire someone to do this part for me. I need two triangles of steel, roughly 6 feet long and 6 inches at the base. I’d like the edges to be smoothed a bit so no one will get cut from touching it. These need to be welded to the pole on location in Denton. It’s a residential home, so I’m not sure if it has 220. I would count on 110 only. I may also need help removing some old rusted bolts. I haven’t tried to remove them, but I am pretty sure they’ll need to be cut off.
Also, the pole is old and rusty (but not corroded). Do I need to grind it down before coating in in a rust-preventative primer?
