I Forge Iron

Gate Hinges

Recommended Posts

Just finished these this morning. I'm not punching the mounting holes until I get the hardware. Once I have the holes punched I will sandblast and paint one set for the customer that ordered them and the other I will oil and put on display.
I have to forge the latch this afternoon.
The top and botton hinge are 18 1/2" from pin center to tip and the middle hinge is 24 1/2" from pin center to tip. The pins are 1/2" and the hinges were made from 2" x 1/4" Flat stock. The barrels were rolled on the anvil.
The customer was over last night and was very happy with them. I just thought I'd share. Let me know what you think.

Well done John.

Very consistent and nicely finished. I especially like the restraint you showed on the scrolls, they're well proportioned and balanced.

Too many get carried away with scrolls to the point they distract from the real design.
