I Forge Iron

Gate installed

Double Y

Recommended Posts

The plate that I had bent to mount on the pillar is made out of 1/2 x 4 plate.  The plate joggels out 4 inches from the pillar.


The gate hinges pass through plate and have nuts on both sides so any sag can be compensated for.


I bolted through the top, bottom and middle.  In the middle I welded a pipe 4 inches long so the bolt passes through the pipe and into the pillar.  I tightened the bolt to the point the pipe touches the pillar.


I hope this explination helps.  The attached rough diagram should help too.

Very nice! I think that if you could have worked in a diagonal element, from the top hinge corner to the far bottom corner, you wouldn't have to worry about it sagging more than the adjustment you have in the hinge bolts. However something like that would be noticeable and so would require a different design to incorporate it.
