    I kinda figured it was considering how nicely done it is.

    Chain is just temporary. Thanks for the idea

    Looks good Joe, it would really finish the look off nicely to ditch the chain and fashion some sort of latching mechanism that doubles as a lock. I did a bunch of access gates this last year and came up with a pretty good system, though it only allows one way swing of the gate. The pictures are before I drilled holes for padlocks, but it’s just a 3/8” hole in the angle iron right above the pin handle and the shackle locks around the handle. It’s super slick to use. Something similar might work for your application with a stub of pipe coming off your outside tube if you don’t have to swing both ways.

    Thank you gentlemen. I pretty proud of how it turned out. My kid brother, also my business partner, told me since that one finished out so well I need to build 2 more sets for our other gates. No good deed goes unpunished. Lol

    Here it is hung in all its glory. It swings really well. I’m gonna let it roll for now. Im painting the fence and all when it warms up.

    Ya, I think being that long you'll end up with a wheel on the end of it. Dadgum cool gate though.

    Its 13’6” long. Worst case I’ll put a wheel on the latch side. I’m a plumbing contractor. The outside perimeter of the gate was built out of 1 1/2” sch 40 that I had left over off of jobs. The inner reinforcement is built out of 1 1/2” sch10. The pickets and angle iron are 14 gauge. Realistically the gate weighs about 225-250lbs. It’s not very heavy to be what it is.

    They look pretty long. Pretty massive swinging gate with two of them together!
