Anyone have any BAD experiences with Salice cup style hinges for face frames
(1.25" overlay if that matters)? A local supplier carries them for $1.25
per hinge as opposed to Rockler's price of $2.50 per hinge for a comparable
Blum. I bought samples of both. The Blum is a tad "beefier" but when I
close my eyes, they both move the door exactly the same. They both also
have all the same adjustments. I could save about $75 if I go with the
Salice hinges, but if the consensus is negative, I don't mind forking out
the extra bucks.
They were one of the very first with that style hinge. I have
used them quite a bit and never had a problem or a failure.
This is a BIG company with a long history(50 years).

I have no experience with them but if you want to stick with Blum and get
them at a good price, look here.
http://wwhardware.com/ Rockler is absolutely one of the most expensive
places to buy these type items.
