Started attempting door handles


Recommended Posts

These are my first two attempts at door handles. One was really just an excuse to try a pineapple twist. It has become clear to me I need lots of practice with hammer control, doing shoulders and making things match up. Very fun though.

Go pick out some screws fit for gate handles. Make a counter punch so you can make counter sunk screw holes. Counter punch then through punch it for the screw.

Getting twists even is a challenge that doesn't go away with time. If you have a torch I recommend using it to heat where you need it. Twisting also needs you to be fast, the heat in the bar doesn't remain even long the wrench and vise are very effective heat sinks.

Nice job.
