Made a gas door

It’s awfully nice to have a metal break. Thought it turned out pretty well. Spring loaded door hinge from ace hardware. It’s a bit difficult to get the opening geometry just right.

Well that is just very cool! Looks completely professional, you should make some to sell to the rest of us...
Thanks! Yes I might make some of these if there is some interest.
Ok, I can make these for $80 plus shipping.
Made of mild steel with welded-on mild steel spring loaded hinge.
Painted w Excel XL Classic Acrylic Urethane flat black (prototype pictured above is more of a semi-gloss black rattle can).
Will include a template for hole drilling, and 4 screws.
These will be hand-made but I will bolt each one to my own machine to ensure proper function.

Priced to be second from the top of the market. The top one is $99 and made of aluminum. It and mine are the only ones I see that have more than 1 bend. Notice mine has a final bend in at the very top.

Please PM me if you are serious. Thanks guys!
