exactly what I needed!
I was looking for a solution to a problem when I saw these hinges in the Rockler catalogue. They worked perfectly and they are quality hinges.
These hinges worked great. Perfect solution to a tough problem.
Part of the display is permanent but they wanted to change the name weekly.

Rovkler Knife Hinges save the day!
I used the hinges to repair an antique record cabinet. The original hinges were broken and the doors and lower trim were split. I was able to glue the trim, but I had to fill the door with wood filler (Wonderfill). It will never have much value as an antique, but it looks good sitting next to the hand crank Victrola.

Good price, worked great first time. I recommend a self centering drill bit to drill the holes to install the hinges.

What is the allowable weight for each cabinet door when using this hinge?
Carlos F on Nov 10, 2015
Will these hinges work for a folding attic door?
Kat G on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kat,
If you are referring to the pull down attic door and stairs, they are probably not strong enough or big enough. Also, usually the stair sections are all the same width and these are made for and offset mounting or woould require shimming one side to make it work. They are really only intended for smallish cabinet doors.

would this work for a small step ladder?
JUDY M on Mar 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Judy this would not work on the small step ladder it’s more an application for a cabinet door Enter an answer to this question.
I have a piece that has a drop down door that acts as a desk. Will this hinge work with that application?
Kathy N on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think these would work for that application, they seem to be better suited for vertical doors.

I am not happy with Rockler, the last order that I made was supposed to be free shipping and one set of dolly wheels were supposed to be on sale and their web site would not give me the sale price, beware.
how thick is the hinge? I need to allow enough space for the hinge between the cabinet and door
Lana R on Sep 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The hinge is 3/16" thick. It is not necessary but they work best when a notch is routed out so the hinge sits flush with the door and cabinet.
could this hinge be used on a folding chair? Is the hinge strong enough to hold a person?
Peter L on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not believe it is strong enough to hold a person. I utilize it for a 4 pound cabinet door.
Do the Reversible Knife Hinges Item #: 29710 come in pairs (one for the top of the door and one for the bottom)?
