        Alright I'm good then. I was planning on using a 1-1/2 ID Sch 40 pipe and wanted to make sure it was not too thin. Thanks

          I've always used 1 1/4" Steel pipe. It is about a sch 40 wall thickness and is 1 5/8" OD. The steel pipe has a little better outside finish than regular black iron pipe normally used for piping/plumbing.

            What's often (incorrectly) called "Black Iron" pipe IS mild steel.

                I got one more question. Before on rails I just bolted a plate down. But on this job it would be faster to just core drill holes. My question with doing the core drill holes is how far past the concrete should I set my posts? The concrete it 4'' thick. Also what suggestion on concrete for the hole other than epoxy?

                    On those rails that I built I am pretty sure we added 6" to go through the concrete and into the substrait.

                    I didn't core drill nor anchor those. The cement contractor handled that part of the job. You might want to check with a local fence contractor to inquire what they use on fence posts.
