Solid Iron Railing

I want to remove my solid iron railing from the back porch. the post are inch and a half by inch and a half, and are imbeded in the concrete pad. I want to save the imbeded part of the railing post that are inthe concrete. What could I do to acomplish this mission. Or should I just cut them with a reciprocating saw flush with the concrete.

thank you in advance for anyone that can give me some advice.

Truly

You will either have to cut the posts or break the concrete.

Re: Solid Iron Railing

Keep in mind that if you cut the post off, it'll leave a metal stub in the concrete. Exposed to air and moisture, it's going to rust and make a mess of the surrounding concrete. To stop that, you're going to have to either cover it up with a decorative cement something or cut it out.

Good Luck.
