Roger, as long as we are being Hijacked I might as well go along for the ride.:lol:sapwood said:Thanks D L, not only have you directed me to a more appropriate solution; you've helped me hijack DaveO's thread :eusa_whis
BTW, is it necessary to chamfer back side when using barrel hinges?
I have only used the 5mm hinges a couple of times when I made some pen boxes and I did chamfer the edges on those. I belive based on how the hinge pivots on a single point you will have to chamfer the edge to avoid any binding. You might try it on some scrape w/o the chamfer to see if it will work for your application. I have used the 10mm barrel hinges a few times now for some boxes and I did not have to chamfer the edges. Of course the 10mm hinge opens up and out to provide clearance.
Happy hijacking........I enjoyed the ride.:icon_thum
