I am building a gate. It is a double gate with two swinging doors.
It is made from some of my huge collection of old rusty stuff I collected most of my life.
I have a lot!
I cleaned the rust off with an angle grinder and wire brush. At this point, the iron just has linseed oil on it.
The two side frames are from two old horse drawn plows.
The four spoke wheel near the middle of the picture is cast iron. It is on there now but I'm pretty certain it will fall off with the slightest touch.
The gate is 47" tall and 44" wide. It weighs about 200 lbs.
It will swing like a pair of saloon doors.
I think it is pretty cool.
I am currently making my post and barrel hinges.
The width at the top is equal to the width at the bottom even though it doesn't look that way in the pictures.
I also am currently pondering my cast iron problem. I would replace it with something else if I had something the right size.
But I don't.
