the nine ton gate is considered ed's most outstanding achievement. this gate is 80 inches wide, 92 inches tall, and 21 inches thick. this coral stone slab weighs approxmately 18,000 pounds. what makes this gate so remarkable is that ed found the exact center of balance. the gate can be moved using one finger to push it. the gate pivots on a rod resting on a recycled automotive gear.
