    Looks a bit flat. Why not cut a spare CX wreck down the middle and mount it left and right on a set of wide gates?

    Or a pair of ID wrecks as gate guards and painted in best Taubmans?

    This is good! Possibly to cut some veneer(instead of metal...) and paint properly. It should last for a while. Or you would chop up many of your parts D`s and do the gate.

    no not a CX, the gate will break down and leave you stranded or ocnfined depending on what side of the gate you are on

    Plus with a CX not only will the gate break down it will also leak all over the drive way

    I'm sure I could design something for you. Then all you need to do is take it to a fabricator to be made up. The gates would have to go "up and down" through...sometimes randomly.

    Shane,

    If you like that particular gate. The jpeg can be sized and manipulated into copy for NC plasma or laser cutter. Once you have the outline metal work done the rest if fabricated from RHS tube and the metal work tacked on.

    You can fabricate the frames by laying out on a piece of chipboard, sketching (or ruling ) the gate frame design, then cutting up the RHS and holding place with nails. Weld up one side, lift and do the other side. Repeat with opposite handed leaf on the back of the chipboard. When I was a kid a family friend made wrought iron gates and used this method.

    If you are keen have the whole lot hot galvanised dipped.

    The fabrication is well within your skill set.

    cheers

    Rob.

    There's a place in Daylesford about 20 yards up from the roundabout who does exactly that.

    Contrary to the vast majority of gates that seem to need to be on the boundary, I prefer to locate gates one car length in board. There are a number of reasons for this:

    1) a visitor can park safely off the street and footpath in front of your gate.

    2) the gate can open outwards. Your engineer should coordinate carefully with your security detail. All your vehicles should be able to "burst" the gates open when locked, without sustaining more than cosmetic damage. At the same time they should be strong enough to resist a ram from the outside in. To me that's an essential attribute for a security gate.

    Hi Shane,

    My good mate James McCready does a lot of steel sculpture, he is definitely more into abstract work, one hell of an artist.

    His space you see in the article is next to the Morrabbin airport.
    OR, I wonder if Woody from 'Bent Metal' is still in Carlton... he's one hell of a blacksmith!?
    I can pm you his mobile if your interested.

    "....coordinate carefully with your security detail." !?? Mate, the time Shane needs a security detail will be about the time I greet him, saying "I welcome my new overlord."

    The setback though is a great idea, looking at 1.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    Hi-I know a bloke who is awesome with metal who in fact is at the moment making some lights for the Law Courts in Melb & some for one of the Country Towns.
    Will speak to him if You like & see what He says.
    I reckon that the top bar over the Chevron looks a little out of place though.
    How about some solar lights on top of the gate?

    Thanks Guys,

    nah don't go out asking people for help etc.... I do like the gates though Richos is good ... maybe I should do something with a farm gate like he had.... Hey PJ, do you think we live on top of a gold mine. I sure if I installed impact proof gates, no-one would think of simply driving through the normal fencing beside the bomb proof gate

    That's why rather than a fence, in my designs I prefer to have a low-height wall, with a raised garden directly behind it. This wall need not be more than 400-500mm high, and the garden beyond can slope down to natural ground level assuming a level site. Planting will stabilise. There's no way a car can get through it, and it is a great deterent. Whereas a fence does nothing at all to stop an intruder.

    So in addition to your new fence, we need to do some serious landscaping at your joint.

    Given the current state of affairs, I hope your kids are properly drilled on getting themselves into the panic room QUICKLY, seeing that intruders can wander onto your property completely undeterred.

    I can reliably tell you dogs are not match for intruders. A sample of the counter measures to dogs I've seen work include:

    - The Sunday roast on the back lawn.
    - Mugging the dog
    - Bullet to the head
    -Dog locked bathroom
    -Dog necked with a wire noose

    Even the most stupid intruder is a lot smarter than a dog and dogs have a habit of announcing their presence well ahead of time.

    Dogs are great for some early warning of unwanted visitors or deterring the casual intruders. They are no match for a pre-planned visit.

    And it's assuming your dog never leaves the property. I want my place to look after itself, with a vast array of active technology and other deterrents designed into the place. And of course, as I mentioned in my first post in this thread, that you want to have a viable escape for your family if it all gets too difficult. I.e. run, then press a button on your smart phone and boom!
