I'm planning on making a pair of cafe doors and want to use the standard
pivot hinges for them; by "standard" I mean those with a sloped and notched
nylon block at the bottom...the notch holds them open, the slope allows them
to swing closed once moved from the notch.
The problem is, those hinges only allow 180 degres of swing, 90 degrees in
each direction, from the closed position and I need 180 degrees in one
direction. IOW, I want to be able to open the doors flat aganst the wall in
Anyone know of any hinges that will do all the above? If not, how about
1. attach a piece of wood to the jamb
2. hinge a second piece of wood to #1
3. attach cafe hinges to #2
What should happen is...
1. push the cafe door open, it stops at 90 degrees
2. keep pushing and the #2 piece of wood swings 90 degrees, cafe door is at
