Topic tags/keywords: hinges box

I’ve seen these barbed hinges used a couple of times and then stumbled across them on Woodcraft. They look pretty slick. Does anyone have experience? Are they worth it?

i’ve used them on small boxes ,
in pine they might lossen ,
in hardwoods ,
they do o.k. .
you have to get their arbor and blade .
it’s a one shot deal ,
no fitting and moving around .

I use them on some production runs.Once you are set up with some guides and jiggs they are worth it.I do add a bit of normal woodglue in the slot and have no problem of them working loose.But like patron said it,s a one shot deal.
