Made my first set of inset doors. Used Euro-style full-inset hinges from
Home Depot ("Liberty" brand) rather than Blum.
The spring is very tight - so tight that the doors a pulled past their 90*
closure, and bow in at the center. I've added a center stop at the top,
which solved that problem -- at the top, but the bottom ones are still
dished inward slightly by the spring tension. (Posted simple diagram on
Before I add another stop at the bottom to hold them at a tight 90* - I'd
thought I'd ask the wreck.
Am I missing something with inset doors?
Is there away to adjust the tension on Euro Hinges so they don't tug the
doors closed and past 90*?
Might this just be an attribute of BORG brand hinges?
Or is it normal operating procedure to place door stops at the top and
bottom - or a rail in the center of the cabinet?
