WWII Cedar chest project
This cedar chest is almost 80 years old. It was hand made and hand carved by German POW's held in Tullahoma, TN. It was important to me to keep it as close to the original as I could, but the hinges were useless and I decided to replace them with this piano hinge. It worked perfectly.

Great hinge for price
My first time mounting a piano hinge on a door and cabinet. Easy to do. This hinge is well constructed, easy to trim to length with fine-tooth hacksaw. I used self-centering bits and it went flawlessly. Operates smoothly and looks quite professional. I like the grey, as opposed to brass, as it blends in well with cabinet finish.

For a tight area where a hinge is necessary, the piano hinge works perfectly. Also extremely pleased to have dark colors available rather than the standard chrome or nickel.

They don't get nicer, nor better!!
This hinge is a perfect compliment to the piece I was commissioned to make. The only continual hinge on the market I could find in the lovely dark finish. Works reliably and looks exquisite!

Can these hinges be cut to size?
Prescott M on May 5, 2015

What's the thickness if not mortising? Looking to accurately size up doors before hinges arrive
Jeffery R on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Jeffery, I have found piece I had left and it measures; A. hinge side closed is .179 " B. each leaf came out .043". Hope this helps, Greg
is this suitable for a 7/8 inch board?
Dave V on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Dave, yes this will work fine for a 7/8" stock and if you want/need to recess the hinge that too will work. I chose
this style of hinge for two reasons, length and color and the bonus is the slotted screw holes I use for accurately placing the hinge. Best of Luck, Greg

I need piano hinge screws dark now brass colored
john u on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've used model car metallic paint found in most craft stores to match screws. Dab a dot on part of hinge that will be hidden to make sure you are happy with the color match.
how many degrees is this hinge? Is it 180 or 360 degrees?
Alicia S on Jan 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Hinge will open more than 180 but you will quickly be limited by the thickness of your door beyond that. I used the hinges for large heavy doors for a flat screen tv wall cabinet and I open the doors about 190 degrees to get them completely out of the way.
Can you pull the hinge pin out of the 36" piano hinge to make it easier to install each half and then reassemble after all the screws are installed on both halves?
Ralph on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, the only problem if the hinge is longer than about two feet you start bending the hinge pin putting back in
Will the 36" hinge hold 70 lbs?
Ralph on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ralph, it all depends on the direction of the pull, length of fastners, what they may be attached to. What I mean by 'direction of pull" piano hinges are strong and can handle 70 lbs without fail but putting the whole weight on one or two fastners in the hinge would be excessive stress. If you are asking can the hinge support a door that weighs 70 lbs in a verticle answer would be that I don't think it would last very long. The weight is supported too much on the top and then down the next set of fastners and then to the next set until they all fail. If it is laying flat on supported frame work..........then no problem, it works great for this. Good Luck, resend if you need further info. Greg
How heavy of a door can be used with the 72" long hinge?
Susan B on Jan 5, 2017

Can I buy a 4ft hinge
Thomas C on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: not in charcoal gray there is a oil rubbed bronze hinge that comes in a 4 foot length. if you want the gray hinge color get the 72" and cut it to the length you want.
Can you paint grey hinges with spray paint?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the hinge is alright to paint over the factory coating but I would caution you to not pile on the paint for the simple reason; should you use bugle head fasteners you will run the danger of paint chipping where the screws snug up against the hinge.
