For some time now, I’ve been using only side rail hinges from They are available in quadrant or stop-hinge without the quadrant. In two sizes. Both will work fine with 1/2” stock using a 5/16” router bit. These are machined from solid brass and gold plated and suitable for the finest box. They are also easier to install perfectly. They are about $30/pair. Brusso’s are well made, but the quadrants will be difficult to install perfectly without their router jig. But then, you may prefer their regular stop hinges. Hope this helps. Good luck.
