I have two Blum 'clip' hinges set in about 6" in from the edges of a 24"W x
32" H 11mmT Russian Birch plywood door, There is a 1x2" frame. It is
rabetted into the back. The hinge side is screwed tight 6x, and glued in
the center only (~5." between center 2 screws). The screws around the other
3 perimeter sides allow the plywood to stay flush with the frame, but float.
I chiseled out the 1-3/8" holes for the door side of the hinge and am about
to screw the hinge to the door. The door is half-inset (rabetted again
outside perimeter 4 sides), and is rubbing tightly inset all four sides on
the inside of the panels of the fusebox panel box frame.
I could put the door into position and it will sit (It ain't going anywhere
in ANY direction).
How do I mark the initial locations for the holes for the frame side of the
hinge. They are the clip kind, so I could separate them instantly. But I
cannot peek around nor behind when the door is closed. There is no side,
nor back, nor does the inside panel from the frame come out. The panel and
frame were both chiseled simultaneously to fit the hinge door side.
There is according to Blum all kinds of adjustment built into these hinges,
but I afraid to experiment because they are at factory default.
I could measure and guess, and hope there is enough adjustment, but I
wouldn't know where to start - I'm pushing it as it is (and maybe sanding
here and there too).
could I make some temporary hold-down clamps (toggle-style) of scrap wood
screwed to the inside of the frame to the hold the clip on frame-side tight
enough to push the doors into position when the door is closed, then open
the door (if I can, if they are held tight enough), and then mark the drill
