    Thank all for the nice words...
    The scrolls are hand made using a propane forge, an anvil, and a big hammer.
    I made my own barrel hinges using 1" cr round, 1/2" cr pins and the shiney part of the hinge is bronze bearing I made on the lathe. The gate is very quiet when being opened as it should stay.

    Default Hi Monte

    Very nice job on the gate. I have two grills in the works so I will have to figure out how to post photos.
    I was wondering about the punch you mentioned. Is this is a commericial product? If so can you provide the source and a photo of the setup?
    If shop made a few pointers on how it was made?
    Thanks!
    Bill

    Nice work do you install all your own work or do the customers take care of it.

    I made my press. It uses a car lift electric hydraulic pump unit. I'll try to get some pics for you. There are also mechanical punches you can get used for not too bad a price for used. I make a lot of my tools like that.

    CR means cold rolled steel as opposed to hot roll. CR steel is smoother and
    stronger as I see it.

    I do install all of my work so far. I would like if the customer could give me
    good specs to build by, pay me, pick it up, and get out of my life.

    Great looking work!

    Not meaning to de-rail the threadf - just thought I'd chime here on a recommendation for propane forges - I bought mine at Chili Forge - the Cayenne.

    Not related at all - just giving them a thumbs up on quality and service...
