What ever scale is in there local. Here it's around $30 hr for Ironworkers in local 103. Scale changes normally less in the south and more in big cities and up north.

I was an Ironworker in 103 for 7 years. So yes been there done that. Most of our building are not over 200' and not many high rises. Bridges over the ohio river and smoke stacks are the highest things in our area. The 3 stacks I built maxed at 630' one bridge was 730' to the crowd nest.

That's some hefty stuff Sfranks! How many passes to fill out those bevels??

Ain't nothing to be scurred of when you're tied off! Worst case is a little swinging and bumping into whatever's under you. For me it's all about getting used to it. If I haven't worked up high in a year it takes me a day or so to get warmed up, like getting sea legs back.

I've never built a skyscraper, but I've flown in a crane basket a couple hundred feet above the water to inspect a derrick on an offshore oil platform. That and a lot of roofs and wall tops.

I was in the Army for 11 years. Jumped out of planes and rappelled out of helicopters a bunch, but I couldn't even finish the video. I don't think I could have even done that in younger years. Too much for this boy.
