I like the solid brass hinges but the brass screws are not good and anyway you look at it brass is soft…
I now discard the brass screws and use #4 steel brass-plated flat head screws with a square drive instead of a philips head…

I use the vix bit all the time and it is great. I have also used the screw extractors that drill around the hole but have fortunately not had that problem in a long time.

-- Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpieceā€¦ because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work
