Topic tags/keywords: question

I’ve searched all over for this type of hinge. They are the same sort of hinge you find on old folding rules. I can’t find them anywhere, and I don’t even know for sure what they are called.

Thanks for any help.

I don’t think they make those anymore, but it is very similar to flange hinges, soss hinges, and knife hinges. Most utilize a stacked setup now, instead of a slotted one like the picture above.

No, Rockler does not have them. They have knife hinges, but that’s not exactly the same thing. I had already looked at the usual places on line — Rockler, Garrett Wade, Lee Valley, no luck. Even the images that web searches returned never showed a hinge, always a folding rule with the hinge.

I’ll probably just buy a folding rule and take the hinge from it.

That’s what it is Aj. Good find. I still don’t see hinges for sale, but I’ll keep looking. Like I said, it might just be easier to buy a folding rule. I’m not ready to give up like that though :)

I saw that. I could definitely adapt it for my needs, but I can buy a folding rule and steal the hinge for less. Thanks for looking though.
