Default Where Can I Find Small Piano Hinges

I've look on line for small piano hinges but can't seem to locate small hinges for example six to eight inches long for small boxes. Does anybody know of a supplier of such hinges?

Hi Jerry

I've always bought lengths and just sawn to required length with a hacksaw. Finish off with a fine engineers file to remove any burrs

Regards

Phil

Also check other hobby suppliers, doll house suppliers and model shops. I've always wondered why a lot of woodworking suppliers try to sell me jewelry box hinges that are over-poweringly visually "large" when I'm looking to make something small and delicate. LOL

I buy them by the length and cut them. You can get them in various metals. I have some in Stainless Steel which are for outdoor use.
