Grizz, these are used on a 3 mirrored door (less than quality) medicine cabinet. I want to build a replacement and thought these would be easy to get and use. So far, I haven’t found a source.

Lew,

I’m not sure of the scale I’m looking at but aren’t those window hinges that mount on the top/bottom? I had to replace some on “wing” windows in 2nd floor rooms. Couldn’t find them but they are a cake to make if you can bend and cut some thin metal. I just used pop rivets at the hinge point. Windows opened easily but were a bit stiff at first. Lasted 12-years till we moved.

“TinMan”- Sorry about the picture, the leafs are about 2” long.

Poopie- Thanks for the link, I saw some similar to your link a couple of places. Was hoping the hinges weren’t going to cost more that the wood but it might come to that.

Lew, this is a similar type of hinge that does the same, I bring a photo if anyone knows this and not the other. I can not help you this far in the purchase. Greetings

My fault Lew. If I would have refreshed my screen I would have seen that you already told Grizz they were for a cabinet. Same hinge though – just smaller than a window. I’m still looking.
