I have a project (cigar humidors) which needs high-quality hinge
hardware with some sort of backstop. I can't use quadrant hinges here,
because the design won't let me mortice the sides of the box. I don't
even think I've got spec in there for a sliding stay type of lid stop.
So I'm wondering about the Brusso hinges, with a built in backstop.
They're just like a normal brass butt hinge, but in thicker material and
with a square corner to act as a stop.
I'm sure they're well enough made, but how good is the backstop? It's
asking a lot to have a solid action when they've only got the thickness
of the brass to act as a lever arm - are they convincing in use as
hardware for high-ticket pieces ? Anyone used them ?
Also, does anyone have a UK source for Brusso ? Otherwise it;s Lee
Valley and trans-pond shipping.
