Thanks Tubais, I wish I could be as lucky as you, but just putting the new bushing in the other hinge leg ain't gonna get it for me. the leg without the bushing is way too worn.
Dave, the copper rod is a great idea, never tried that before.
I was also thinking of welding a plate, kinda like a washer, on the underside of the leg (or on the top, if the new pin sticks thru enuff) with the correct size hole already drilled in it. Whaddaya think?
Being a Steamfitter, holding a number of pipe welding certifications, I can weld this stuff up myself. I have stick, tig and mig machines. Just might Tig this one...
