    I have an iron support that holds up one side of a porch overhang. It has two 1" square rods, connected with "S" shaped curly pieces of flat iron, typical of w/i fences.

    Where one of the 1" rods meets the concrete steps, it has rusted away, so the support relies on only the intact rod.

    Is there a way to repair this damage? Epoxy? ideas? ie short of replacing the whole thing :(

    Thanks

    Usually, these are decorative not structural. If yours is being utilized as structural, I'd replace and beef it up while your at it.
