I’m considering the Rockler Torsion Hinges for a chest I’m designing. I have a few questions that I’m hoping you guys can answer for me.
I’ve seen them used by a number of guys here, they seem to be very popular.
1. When they open, does the lid “spring open” or does it have an easy feel to it?
2. How far can the lid be opened? It looks like the lids on the chests I’ve seen them used on only open to about 45 degrees.
3. When the lid is closed, does it have a “positive feel” in the closed position, or does it feel like it’s ready to spring open with the slightest touch.
4. Is there any difference between the ones that appear to “hook” over 3/4” stock and the ones that mount “flat”?
Thanks to all who can answer my questions.
