Can anyone please point me to a site where brass, swaged piano hinges can be purchased?
Thanks for your help.

Sorry, both leaves half swaged. Was hoping to find them in stock somewhere.

Gene,

BOTH LEAVES HALF-SWAGED
Both leaves are swaged approximately one-half the pin diameter with a minimum clearance between leaves when parallel.

From your description this product is what you are looking forand,

From what I see AlaskaGuy was pivotal in solving the enquiry.

I guess now everything hinges on finding them.

-- Regards Robert

I may have to stick a set in a vise and bend the leaves. That will work … sorta.
