Lid-Stay hinges were a real hit at the horse show
My 12 year old grand-daughter said she'd like a tack-trunk for Christmas. I thought "I already made you one..." but then realized that was when she was 6 years old and it was a really small trunk. In making full size trunk, I tried to make it better than my first one. I had noticed that every rider using a tack trunk had to hold the lid up with one hand and take out what they needed with the other. On searching the Rockler catalog I found these torsion hinges. The trunk lid was going to be somewhat heavy (since the frame is solid cherry), so I chose to use two of the 60 inch-pound hinges. They work beautifully on the trunk, and the lid will stay in position as long as it's anywhere near vertical. The other riders at the horse show last weekend asked my grand-daughter "how does it do that?"

Huge time-saver for torsion hinge installation
Nicely designed and built jig that saves time and eliminates errors when installing the torsion hinges.

Please note that using this jig requires the use of a #6 self-centering drill bit. It would help if this were noted on the Rockler web site page for this jig, including a link to purchase the bit with the jig.

What size Insty-Drive Self Centering bit would you need for the Rockler Lid-Stay Torsion Hinge Jig It?
Brad C on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry as I have not used the template yet. as for the insty drive bit, I would choose the one closet to the size of the screws, maybe just a squeak smaller.
I need to reduce the thickness of the case wall to accomodate he 3/4 inch opening of the hinge, however i need to know the dimension of the overhang and the width of the screw platform on the case interior side.
kevin k on Feb 28, 2016
Is this 3/4 or 5/8 inch thickness?
Pam C on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I ended up not using the jig,the hinge itself is really nice .3 1/8 inches wide by 3/4 inches with the lip but only requires a mortise of 1/4 inch . Hope this helps.
I'm using the Rockler lid-stay torsion hinge JIG IT for the lid-stay torsion hinges. What size self centering isty bit would I purchase? I don't have the jig or hinges yet.

what is maximum overlay using hinge and jig?
Janet T on Mar 14, 2018
I have this jig and a 5/64 self-centering bit that i bought with the set here on rockler. It doesn’t fit from the top of the jig but does seem to fit from the bottom. Should I push the bit in harder or flip the stopblock or, is 5/64 not equal to #6?
