Not to stir the pot any more, just an FYI. From a Blum package
I have in my hand the instructions for a hinge made for a
cabinet without facing...
"To locate center of hinge cup on back side of door, measure
over from edge of door 22.5mm (7/8"). Here drill a 35mm (1-
3/8") diameter by 13mm (1/2") deep hole."
For a "face frame hinge" the distance changes to 20.5mm
Once again ... do this more than once and you will quickly learn to use both
the "Overlay" and "Reveal" charts for the different type euro hinges.
Both charts use the "bore distance", which is defined as "the distance from
the edge of the door to the edge of the hinge cup", and these "bore
distances" are specifically _provided_ to make it easy to fine tune the
overlay and reveal of your doors, be they overlay or inset.
IME, using these charts/tables, based on the "bore distance", will
_inarguably_ give you greater flexibility, accuracy, and ease of
setting/fine tuning these parameters.
But, that said, be my guest should you want to futz around with the "center
of cup" measurement if you indeed want to get these parameters spot on,
every time, and with ease.
Methinks, having done it a time or two, I'll stick with the method where the
guess work is already done for me. :)
