I Forge Iron

"Hinge Bending Tool " "Donald Streeter"

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have been asked to make up a set of forged Chest hardware including, Corners, Edge brace, Hasp & Latch, and hinges. 

I saw a utube video talking about a hinge bender that was made by Bill Hahn and based on one that was in Donald Streeter's book

   Has anyone made one of these or got plans, drawing etc???

This may not be the biggest help ever but I've seen a hinge bender in the gallery section. If you try and search in there you might be lucky. No instructions though only a few (3-4) picts. Maybe the member who posted them can help you more.

Good luck
