Pintle and Gudgeon

_____________________________________________________

A gudgeon is a cylindrical fitting, often made of metal, which is affixed to a surface. It allows for the pivoting of another fixture. It is generally used with a pintle, which is a pin which pivots in the hole in the gudgeon. As such, a gudgeon is a simple bearing.
