[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You may want to specify that no hammering take place during erection if
erected when colder than -30 degrees F. There are several cases where
steel acted like cast iron and shattered when hit with a hammer. I would
think you would want to avoid any field welding.
