Leaf Width
Leaf Width
Leaf Width is the distance from the center of the pin to the outer edge of the leaf.

Most hinges have equal width leaves, but it is certainly possible to have unequal leaf hinges. Unequal leaves on lighter hinges should have a total width equal to a standard width. For example, leaves of .50" and 1.50" (2.00" total - a standard) are preferable to .50" and .625" (1.125" total).
