Hey, so my googling and forum searching hasn’t found exactly what I’m looking for, maybe someone has a recommendation?
I’m looking for small non-brass (hate brass finishes, though plated brass would be fine) hinges for a small 1/8"-wall thickness jewelry box. If exterior hinges, then an interesting look would be nice. I suppose I could try to source something like a small piano hinge, as well, but the thin walls are difficult. On top of that, a standard “use the screws that came with it” implementation isn’t going to work either, I’d probably need something like rivets or thin Chicago screws. I could also epoxy them into shallow engraves if there were any that had no screw holes or would otherwise look ok doing so.
I looked at two types of concealed hinges, and ran into the same issue in both cases: the walls are only 1/8", and pocketing anything in material that thin is kind of asking for despair. I love the idea of concealed hinges, but fear that its just not in the cards.
Anyone cracked this design question? I searched amazon, mcmaster, and a bunch of others, and at this point, I am thinking that it either doesn’t exist or I am just not able to figure out the correct terminology.
