Willy N--Door Knocker

I was looking at the gallery and saw your knocker and I'd like to know more about how you made it. What are the studs? How did you do the hinge?
I posted a picture of a knocker that I made out of a shoe and a spur. It hasn't shown up yet, if it don't show up tomorrow I'll repost. Maybe someone has to approve pictures posted to the gallery or maybe I did it wrong?

I like your Door Knocker! The way I made mine was to narrow the shoe that is the knocker one so I could use a Tube Welded to it that had 2 bolts with the heads ground round to look like pins insert them into the tube to make the hinge and welded them on the bigger shoe with the studs on it. The Studs are threaded in posts to help keep the shoe from sliding on grass and mud when on the horse. The studs gave a place for the shoes to hit and do the knocking with out messing up the door. It also allowed room for the fingers to grab ahold of the knocker shoe easier. Mark H.

Thanks! I'll have to make one like that sometime. I did mine by heating and bending a stainless steel rod around the studs on the spur leaving a srtaight leg on the rod, then drilling a couple of holes in the shoe and stick the straight part of the rod thru and weld on the back side.

You got me looking for a Spur now. The one I had did not sell on EBay but my Daughter is taking them to a Gallery that sells that kind of stuff so I made a bunch more along with some other things. Mark H.

Hey Dave,

You probably messed up the picture upload. No approval process that I am aware of. It is pretty much instant. That is how you can get your true URL for the pic.

You may want to try again.

Thanks, it's there now. I guess I closed the window instead of hitting the final submit button :)
