Antique Door hinges

Looking for replacement hinges for interior doors in a 150 year old new england farm house. The doors are thin, 1.25". The original hinges were cast iron, 6 hole, 3"x2.25" and about 1/8" thick. Most broke when removing the doors for refinishing. There are 3X2.5 modern hinges but they are for wooden screen doors and a much thinner gauge steel. So we are not sure the modern hinges are strong enough. Would rather not re mortice the doors and frames.

Re: Antique Door hinges

Antique and reproductions of these hinges (Baldwin Patent its the type) are pretty much available. There's several pair on ebay at the moment, and Ball and Ball hardware co. of PA sells them new in every size (and they will match the screw hole pattern if you give them a drawing/tracing)
