I swear, if I look at one more piece of crap hinges I’m going to explode. Usually I manage to get my antique hinges on ebay, but supplies of antique hinges are getting harder to come by.
I use to get quire a few alternative from house-of-antique hardware But the last 3 sets I got only 1 even functioned properly. The casting was horrible, and in one case the hole was out of alignment. I know they source through china to ease the cost and keep them down, but they unusable pieces of crap! They are great to work with and I know they will take them back, but now I’ll be two weeks behind even more.
I don’t work with bright brass, or I’d go Bursso, witch I like the quality of. So with Ebay supply in short order, I’m trapped, and got a project now that’s been on the bench for almost a month and a half waiting for a solution.
I may have to adjust my design to accomodate a different style of catch/hinge. What a pain in the patooty!
