So, today I was putting hinges on a box, and as usual I came pretty close to stripping the head out of the little brass screws that come with them.
I know a lot of folks will get a steel screw the same size/threading as the brass ones, drill a pilot hole, and tighten then remove the steel screw in every hole.
Now wouldn’t it be nice if the manufacturers of these actually sent you the required amount of brass screws and 1 steel screw. It would make it so much easier than trying to find the right one in your big bucket of screws!
But, I think I am past those type hinges now… From now on I’m getting barrel hinges LOL… no screws!!!
