Little by little.

Here is the hinge boss that will have the arm welded to it..

There is a pin that will support a ball bearing for the hinge pivot top.. The nob sticking out of the top of the boss is for a shoulder coupling that will have a collar bolted over it to lock it in place..

The bottom one will simply slide in..

The hinges are way more complicated then they needed to be but should be strong enough and besides that will be looking good.

Jen, that thing needs a little wooden deck on the back. And a little tiny BBQ grill.

I like how you added the devilishness after the fact..

Well, Lets see... Vintage wrought iron pipe.. 0, Scrap diamond plate left over from a previous job.. 25.00. scrap steel tie scrap.. 0...... a few scrap hydraulic cylinder push rods. scrap 0.

Yeti, Betzy, Gobbler, Dyna, Lucky and MaxS. belt grinder, A/O, welding table, work bench with vise, anvil, 1/8 spool of wire. 75cuft of gas (argon, Co2). ?$

35years of experience, a number of ????????'S because I don't have a clue as to what I want to get done.. Nearly a year of taking up the work bench..

Oh, and will take about 2 quarts of paint..

I'd say it cost way to much.. I could have bought a cheapy from the Box store for about 15.oo..

Boy after you put it that way.. I must be the definition of insanity in the dictionary..

If you are the definition of insanity, the rest of us are lined up shoulder to shoulder right along with you.

One project is the foundation of a hundred more. I have so much to learn that I don't always think about the cheapest way - welder stand post coming soon to prove my point ;-)

Jenn, I have the greatest respect for any one that can do for them selves and don't depend on some one else to fix/repair things.

The satisfaction of doing rather than buying can come at quite the monetary cost. The worth of that satisfaction is priceless.
Thanks for posting the whole project.
