From $29.39 (Average rating from all reviews) Review 1 of 6: I have made several boxes using the Brusso hinges. They are by far the best hinges on the market. The slight angle when open is a very nice feature. These hinges are strong, tight and handsome. They do require precise marking and cutting for the inset. Once you get used to the correct positioning it is a breeze. Make sure you drill the screw holes to allow only a slight amount of resistance to the screw. The screws are very soft AND you WILL strip the head or snap the screw if you have to apply too much force to screw them in. Better to use a thread lock liquid to secure the screws in a slightly larger than normal drill hole, especially in hardwoods.

These are beautiful, quality hinges with a price to match. Ditto other comments about the quality of the screws, but the hardware store came through. I made an MDF template with two cutouts so that I could rout both mortises on the box and finsh them with a chisel with one setup before doing the lid. Everything fit great, except for one minor issue. I mortised the hinges flush to the side of the box, and because of the square edges of the hinge, the rotating corners dig into the wood. I cut out a small amount of wood for clearance and all was fine. Alternatively, you could set the barrel of the hinge proud of the edge of the wood, like in the picture posted by one of the reviewers.

They have all been of the removable type, which is exactly what you get here, and it works great. As for screws braking! yeah they're brass! Predrilling simply is not sufficient. You will need either a gimlet or to run a steel screw in to cut the threads before installing the brass screws. Again, common knowledge to anyone who has used brass screws in hardwood. As for the hinges, they are simply top-notch machined perfection. They are super precise, offer no slop or play, and are built to last, or even outlast, the furniture you include them on. I have used these on several humidors that I have sold for over $600, and my hardware choice is always complimented by the customers. If...

So I used a parallel jaw clamp instead to gently press-fit it in the hole. Worked great. And they look beautiful!
