Cast Iron Gate Pattern

duke's gate

The original gate in this instance had been broken into many pieces after a tractor crashed into it. We were given the separate pieces and tasked with making a new pattern to replace the gate.

After putting back together the broken parts we were able to draw down the full pattern and start producing it. First we used a milling machine to get to the stage where we were ready to start carving the details of the design. This is all done by hand, ensuring a clean, sharp finish which is sympathetic to the original casting.
