Default whats that hinge called

You know the one I mean.
not only a hinge, but also has little brass stays built in that stop the lid going back any further.

I have used lots of these piano hinges which I bought from a salvage yard several years ago for just 20 cents each! They probably thought that they were faulty! I've used many, and given heaps away. I call them piano hinges that only open 90.

Harry, I have never seen a restricted opening piano hinge before.

no, the ones I'm looking for are usually found on briefcases.

You know the front catches on tool boxes where you release the tension on a lower latch and then the latch rises and clears the catch on the top lid?. Well these hinges work on the same principle. When closed everything is flush, but as the lid is opened the little brass arms move out to 45 degrees and stop the lid falling all the way back.
Its very frustrating, I have a perfect picture of them in my mind, I know they exist, but after 15 minutes of google images I still cant find the little devils.

Believe it is called a stop hinge. Woodcraft has several different kinds, but shipping to the Med might be cost prohibitory
Woodcraft Search for stop hinge

Quadrant hinges sounds right to me but there are also box hinges that stop at 90 degrees. Have you checked the Rockler web site?

Woodcraft also carries a broad selection as noted above.

This is one Bob and this company may have others under a different heading. National is the largest hardware maker in North America and the cheapest. The quadrant hingew is the other choice and maybe National sells that one too. http://www.natman.com/type/lid-suppo...atches-latches

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Try googling:
lid stay or metal lid stay and look through the images.
