The puzzle is trying to figure out the best way to attach hinges.

When i had hogs i would weld angle iron, small stu#, one half or three quarter inch around the welded wire panels, if you would buy and cut the angle iron it only takes minutes to weld up. Uses half inch pipe chunks welded to that for the hinges. Drop a rod down through two of them pieces of pipe and you had a gate.

That sounds like a solid gate. Would love to see a photo.
