Playing around with the welder and took a real old Hand Forged Draft Horse Studded Horseshoe and welded a hinged smaller Draft Shoe to it. The smaller one Knocks on the Studs on the toe of the shoe. Mark H.

Looks nice willy. Now don't be wearing that new welder out the first month >>
I see where a neighbor has made gate locks out of old horse shoes . their bolted to the post and the shoe flips up lets the gate swing .

Been thinking on how to make a gate lock other then the type that is a shoe conected to a Barrle Bolt. Tried making a hinge but it is a lot of work to wrap the shoe around a pin. Used a lot of torch gas to heat the shoe when I made a pair a while back. Mark H.

Very cleaver. I like that.
I almost want's me want to exchange my entrance over to a stable door for your knocker mounting.
A total project the likes of this grand replacement including the completing accessorizing. I could only say it once on job completion, "Knocker's up!"
I didnít say that. The devil made me do-it!

Not sure I made it to sell on EBay had the shoes for a long time. Can't make another one unless I can find another draft shoe. I have tons of regular shoes but only a few old hand made ones. Mark H.

well there ya go - cute setup, appealing, gotta be a ready market for 100 at least. course it'd be nice if they didn't rust, then there's a
shortage of old timey horse shoes. sounds like a perfect thing to sandcast outa aluminum. i've seen neighbors gang up on projects like this - by spring they had a truckload ready 4 the roadside. :)
