Hi there, Pumpsone!

I've been searching web sites for more nearly 2 hours now and I
believe that I have thoroughly exhausted every source of online
information for this.

I did find a few guides though, which I have included below.

Iron articles

Hinges - Part 1

Hinges Part 2

How to form a traditional strap hinge barrel

Bean leaf hinge

Steel articles

How to make a hinge

Popular Woodworking (See illustrations down right side)

There are also several articles on the following page, although you
have to become a member of the site to view them:

While I was searching, I also took the liberty of finding several
books which may be useful to you.


New Edge of the Anvil: A Resource Book for the Blacksmith

Edgar Brandt: Master of Art Deco Ironwork

The Complete Modern Blacksmith

I hope that the above articles help you, if you would like I can go to
my local library to find some articles but it's a Saturday here now so
they will not be open until Monday.

Kind regards,
