Default Wooden Hinges

Wooden Hinges made on the router table,,,,

Using 3 bits, 3/8" bead bit, 1 1/8" wide bit, 3/8" wide bit, and the Oak-Park box joint jig.

Still in the hold pattern waiting for the Incra Hinge jig to drill the holes out for the brass hinge pin...

Looks like this might be the cheaper way to go for hinges.

You should be getting the jig any time now, correct?

Hi Ken

Well I did cancel the order with Rockler (they had it setup to ship on the 18th) and got it on the way from Woodpecker should be on my door step Fri, the 18th...

Plus a I saved 10.oo bucks buying from WoodPecker but I blew that on a 12" long drill bit.. LOL .. so in away the bit only cost 10.oo bucks...

Thanks Corey

" mortise these into a box "

I think so, I'm going to try it both ways to see how it looks,, trying to come up with a way to make them 1/4" , they show 3/8" small, but maybe I get get in done in the 1/4" size for small boxes (lids) , maybe the double hinge type will get it done,just playing with now...

Should be simple enough, I'd think. You only need the 1/4" bull nose. I'm sure you already have it though.

Hi Ken

The 1/4" one is going to be tricky,,,using a 1/4" bull nose, the 1/8" pin is a bit big so it looks like a 1/16" pin may do the trick...I have some stainless steel wire that I'm going to try, but drilling the holes that's the hard part....I have one or two aircraft drill bits (4" long) that may do the job but getting on center ,well that's the hard part...I may need to pick up some drill bushing guides that will fit the jig..

The hinge will only 1/4" thick when it's close,, that make the hinge parts only 1/8" thick, and to drill a 1/16" down the center ,well it's like making clock parts and then keeping the hole true for long 1 1/4" long, well , it may not be worth it.. but I do like a challenge...now and then,,, LOL

Bob,
Are you going to use hinge pin wire for the hinge pivot? If so how are you going to terminate the ends to keep them from sliding out? From my experience working in aircraft I know this can be a real ***** unless you have room at the ends to bow them.

The extension bits, I know also from experience that the small sizes you will need would probably be around # 30 or # 40.

You have tweaked my idea bush from a brain fart into a creative mode. Please keep us advised on your work in this matter..

Thanx,
George II

Hi Bob,

I understand that problem. Not sure if this would work. What about 1/4" ID pipe, would only have to do some notching. Would be a pain to do though. But, it is a possibility.

Hi George II

I think I'm going to use THICK super glue to terminate the ends, one small dot should do the trick I think...
If I cut the hinge right ,I should have one part of the knuckle on both ends that will take on the glue and the end of the pin...
I use super glue all the time on wood projects and it holds very well ..and sets up in about 5 sec. or less...with the spray.. (AceTone)

The jig comes with a #30 bit (.128 in dia.) that's 6" long and I did order one #30, 12" long also...

I do have a long #40 bit for the stainless wire that should work..


And I'm looking at it now... great little jig...

"Please keep us advised on your work in this matter" = will do
