Door Hinges

Although they are very simple, the angles and bends are critical to good fit and function.
I'm in Maryland so Oklahoma would be a bit far to come out and see it in person. All of the pictures here are really helpful, so I think I can get them made easily. . Thanks for the offer. Do you have the angle of the hinge between the door and the jam. It looks like it's about 45 degrees.
I just stopped by the local metal supply company on my way home from work and they had scrap pieces of 1/4" that would work fine. They used the "Break Cutter" and made me the correct width and length of material. I just have to get the angle bend just right and drill out for the mounting bolts. Got the round tube also so I have to just weld the round tube for the door hinge pin.
