Here's a stupid question that needs an answer;
I have purchased no mortise hinges from LV for a cabinet. I have
never used these before.
The outer and larger portion of the leaf has the holes for the
vertical adjustment. The smaller inner portion of the leaf has the
holes for the horizontal adjustment.
Which portion of the leaf get's mounted on the cabinet doors.?
I assume the smaller portion... Am I correct.?
That is true at least for the no mortise hinges I got from Rockler for my
Try playing around with them on your project; I know that in my case,
when you have the door and the cabinet in your hands, there is only one way
that it makes any sense for these hinges to be installed.
Good luck. They are easy to install, but I'm not really that thrilled
with them,because of their design, they leave a gap between the cabinet and
the door. For a cabinetry application, which the entertainment center
pretty much equates to, this is OK, for a fine furniture project, this
would not be acceptable. [now, if I were to mortise that frame in, the
gap might go away ... ].
