1/2" Overlay Euro type hinge (35mm)

I've been looking for a non-adjustable, 1/2" overlay Euro (Blum) style hinge and not finding any that will work. Maybe someone here will have a source or an alternative idea.
Some brief history. Several years back I did a refurb on my in-laws kitchen by building new doors and drawers. Also made 4 doors for their bathroom vanity that never got installed.
Fast forward and brother-in-law decided to remodel the bathroom and accidently destroyed the built-in 60" vanity. Okay, so I volunteered to build a custom vanity for the same space. The old vanity did not have any drawers so I decided to include a drawer and a slide out tray in the left side of the vanity.
Never gave a thought to the hinges for the doors I already had built and pre-drilled for the 35mm 1/2" overlay hinges.
Problem. I built the drawers and allowed 1/8" clearance on each side. The face mount Blum hinges have an adjustable plate that mounts to the face frame. It sticks out 1/4" and obviously is right in the path of the drawer and slide out lower shelf.
Looking for a 1/2" overlay hinge that only sticks out the thickness of the mount that gets screwed on to the face frame edge.
I could:
1. Rebuild the two drawers and make them narrower. 2. Use a different style hinge but what? I would then need to fill the 35mm holes with some Bondo - cabinet is painted so no big deal.
I know someone makes these flat style mounting hinge because I saw a 1/14" overlay hinge on a cabinet at the big box stores but they must not make it in a 1/2" overlay. I've Googled, Binged and Yahoo'd using all sorts of search terms and only thing I find are 1-1/4 (or larger). Liberty shows one 1/2" overlay but the part that mounts to the face edge has a bend in the arm that creates the same interference and it sticks out about 1/4".
Thanks for any leads or suggestions. I have a feeling I'll be building two smaller drawers. Next time...measure twice with hinge in place.

They are my goto door hinges when retrofitting most cabinets for pullout drawers and shelving.

May I ask why you would want nonadjustable? I'm not sure I have ever seen one that would not adjust.
Anyway I buy these 50~100 at a time and use them for 95% of my hinge needs.

AND they are on sale right now. Keep in mind that their 50 unit pricing is for multiples of 50. if you buy 60 you pay a higher price for 10.

OK Douh! the drawers will hit the hinge mounted to the inner edge of the FF.
There are face mount Euro hinges....

I will add...... These style hinges let you have any overlay you want. BUT they do not index and can be difficult to mount accurately/squarely. Just be sure to make a jig for that purpose.

Yep, just snapped to his description.
Can he can get his 1/2" overlay with those?
Be nice is the hinge cup hole could be drilled out of the drawers way.
Wouldn't be the first time I've done that. I even have a bit that makes for an almost perfect fit for filling the unused 35mm hole. ;)

The hinge attaches to the face anywhere, so 6" overlay if necessary. Also the hinges can adjust left right a bit where it attaches to the base that attaches to the FF. I used these 25 years ago on the kitchen in my other home. IIRC my doors were built to reveal multiple different overlays. And because of that they required more time to install.
I hate to say this but I put the FF mounting screws in the hinge base and closed the hinge that was mounted on the door. I then placed the door on the cabinet opening, centered it where I wanted it, and pressed down at the hinge so that the screws would mark the FF.
The cabinets were face up on the garage floor at the time. slow but it worked.

Thanks for taking the time to help solve my problem.
Here's a link to a non-adjustable 1/2" overlay hinge by Liberty. Note the "bend" in the tang that connects the door mounted part of the hinge. That would interfere with pulling the drawer out.
The face mounted hinge suggested would only work with a larger overlay where the overlay of the door hides the hinge.
Thanks for your help and it looks like I'll just build a couple of narrower drawers and call it a day.
Thanks,
Bob S.

Did yo find that this hinge needs more than 1/2"?

Now that you mention that I have seen that hinge before. It is sort'a lite weight as far as those style hinges go anyway.
The part that fits attaches to the FF can be easily bent IIRC.
ANY WAY... Maybe you could have the door hinge UP or Down. ;~)

Leon,
Thanks but it looks like I'll be making narrower drawers. Only real problem with that is that it's been colder than a witches *** out there and my small shop isn't insulated. So I'm going to pull the two drawers out of the vanity, hang the door with the Compact Blum's I have and tell'em, see ya in the spring.....
Thank you all for trying,
Bob S.

I did not ever have issue with that. I used 50~60ish of them on the kitchen I rebuilt in our other home, which our son now owns. That was in 1990 ish. They are Blum and in that time period 2 have broken. BUT it was not the base that mounts to the FF, it was the plastic inside the hinge. Blum replaced all of the hinges on that door for free as they were slightly different. Blum hinges have a lifetime warranty.
The only issue would be if the base fits outside the edge of the door with the door placed in a 1/2" overlay position. I don't think that would be an issue however if the door is actually a full inch wider than the actual opening. IIRC the base can be reversed so that the mounting screws can be placed further from the edge of the FF.
I am pretty certain that they would solve your issue and be robust enough.
Now I will attest that the Liberty Hardware hinge you provided a link to is pretty cheesy, in particular the half that mounts to the FF. I have installed those on the "crap" furniture kits that you get at WalMart and the like.
