Topic tags/keywords: question

Okay… most of the shops I’ve worked in would never allow such a cheezy bit of hardware past their portals, so I dunno, who can tell me the answer to this question: On these no-mortise hinges, which leaf goes to the door, and which leaf goes to the stile?
My wife bought these at an antiques store, for her work-in-process Xmas present curio cabinet/linen storage multi-purpose unit. I gotta use them, and I’m really not positive which leaf goes where. They’re going on the casework today! Help me out, guys/gals! Thx!!

Oh, and one more thing: they’re going to support two 14” X 20” raised panel doors, 2 hinges each. The doors weigh approx 3.5 lbs each. Thx again!

I’ve used a similar hinge, and fastened the larger leaf to the frame.

Don’t know if that is the right way either, but it looked like the strongest to me…

Thanks, jusfine!
Yeah, I just hate it when people look over my work, anxious to find flaws or errors….and this hinge thing might evoke some second-guessing, so I want to be sure it’s right the first time.

Some of these are solid brass some only the finial is solid brass.

Like jusfine said. The larger leaf might be too wide for the door.

Too late for an appeal…the doors are on with thanks to all LJ’s who took the time to write. Topa, I just referred you to an electrical question in the forums… heehee
