I am looking for a way to hinge a heavy chest lid such that it will
remain open at a 60 degree angle.
The lid will be heavy as it will contain quite a bit of electronics:
This is a "stealth" home theatre installation. I'm thinking up to 30kg
(it probably won't be this much, but I like to over engineer) with a
depth of 45 - 60cm, depending on whether I I hinge the entire lid or
only 2/3 of it.
Any suggestions on how to support this. I've been wondering if I could
somehow adapt gas lifts from the rear hatch of a car?
Thanks for any ideas
