Fun with stainless steel

This is one of the odd jobs that keep things from getting too mundane.  A gentleman was doing some upgrades to his home and wanted something that wouldn't rust and would hold 100 pound icicles.  After getting a quote for painting and powder coat it was clear that stainless steel was the cost effective way to go.  3/8 in by 1 in 304 stainless was the choice because the customer wanted stout and no worries.  I learned that if you plan on drilling holes you shouldn't quench the stainless unless you really like the idea of squealing, squalling and disagreeable metal.

A down spout support for when your house gets 7-10 foot long icicles.
