Default Forged Strap hinges and Dutch oven door hardware.

Had a project come in about a month ago.. Trailer was down and just basically put it off till now..

I haven't made a set of hinges in maybe 12-14 years.. Sad part is I took off so much time after I got burnt out and then moving here which is 7 years..

So this project is for a dutch oven door for an old style bake oven on the side of a fireplace..

I had found a piece of metal I thought would fit the bill so got started..

For the most part it seems like yesterday on making them.. Only place I messed up was the first time I formed the eye.. Was a little short on material but worked just the same..

Anyhow, once I was all done it turns out I will have to make a second set a little longer but here are the pictures of how to do it..

The pintel pins will be 7/16 R..

So first step was to make a 3/8" round drift and then a 7/16" round drift..

A drift is used to make a hole a certain size.. When the metal is hot you push the drift thru and this finishes the hole to the right diameter..

it has a long taper one side and a short taper the other side..

It is also used to fold the material around to form the eye to begin with..

So mark how long you want the material for the eye with the extra for the weld scarf.

at yellow heat stick in vise at mark and bend back 90D, let cool just a few seconds then start to bend the scarf back up with the hammer this will create the shape as show in the vise in the last picture..

Here's the pictures..

After it is bent around the 3/8 drift (which is a lot longer than I like for such a narrow hinge width) take a good heat and put drift in eye and tighten up by hammering around and pulling the hinge material tighter around the drift..

Once this is down, take cherry heat and put on ample welding flux..

Once at welding temp take out and start with light hammer blows over far side of anvil working from the hinge towards yourself to get a good weld on the joint .

If the weld isn't good the weld will split when you drive in the 7/16 drift in the next step..

Finish off weld and blend well..

After the eye is refined and the weld is blended enough take and measure out for the center and cut here..

These are some tongs I made for doing this kind of work.. They also have squared jaws for holding both 1/4" Square or round stock..

here they are split and both are forged to get the desired shape..

The finial is also started..

The bevel running along both edges is put in all the way to where the finial will be..

So here you can see the finial (bean pattern). And the door proper..

The length on the hinges is about 2" to short.. I could draw out the shafts more and gain the length but it would thin them out to much for my liking..

In picture 2 and 3 you can see the marks made by the cross pein hammer.. The peen is used for directional forging. Basically moving more material in one direction vs the face which moves the material more or less in all directions..


I didn't make the pintels or the keep..

I'll have to make these after I remake the hinges..

If anybody has questions now would be the time to ask as I can be certain to take pictures of the answers when I make the next set..

The Hammer handles are awesome..

Awesome work, Jenn. Have you ever done Dutch door hardware, like the quadrants?
