reswaging hinges

Date:Mar 21, 2019

The following example shows how a hinge leaf

can be reswaged to correct minor improper door/

frame clearances. This particular method allows

the reswaging to be accomplished while the door

remains in the opening and the hinge leaves remain

on the door and frame. The example shows a top

hinge reswaged to correct a sag-type condition.

However, any of the hinges can be reswaged in this

manner to compensate for conditions opposite to

that of a sag condition.
