    Classic look

    Posted by Bruce on Nov 2nd 2019

    These hinges were the real deal and provide a classic look to the commemorative urn box I used them on. I ordered less expensive hinges somewhere else and they were thin material compared to these hefty hinges. I just wish Brusso made a half-mortised lock to go with them. I ended up polishing the lock I got on the other web site.

    Perfect hinges

    I have been using these Quadrant Hinges for high end Jewelry Boxes for twenty years. They are reasonably easy to fit ( I don’t use the template ) .

    Dead on

    Worked as expected. Wish there was an insert for the mortise. With the guild bushing on my router I can’t see the cut. Mortise was free handed, and while it wasn’t difficult at this price they should do better there.

    Beautiful Hardware

    Posted by Clayton on Sep 3rd 2017

    The hardware is beautiful and has some meat to it. I would buy this hardware again but I would not use the included "steel'" screw to pre tap the holes. My only gripe is that I drilled, pre threaded the hole and waxed the "steel" screw and the thing still twisted off leaving half the screw in the wood. The brass screws gave me no issue with the same process. The brass templates are definitely worth it. Just make sure you get your router deck and guide bushing centered over the router bit.

    Beautiful Quadrant Hinges

    Posted by Bill Brooks on Jun 5th 2017

    Very nice hinges for medium to large boxes. My first use was on a humidor. I tried to get the fit correctly using only a drill bit and chisels. While getting close on practice pieces of poplar, I could never get it "just right". I purchased the router template ( TJ-638) and everything worked perfectly this first time.
    Take care to read and follow the routing instructions and you will be very pleased with the results.

    the best hardware out there

    Posted by David Thomas on Mar 4th 2017

    I can't imagine spending all of the time making your project and then use a lesser quality piece of hardware. Brusso's hardware is stout, well made and consistent.

    Great, But Could be Improved

    Posted by Michael on Feb 18th 2017

    I have found that this quadrant hinge, along with all of the other Brusso products to be of the finest quality and workmanship. That said, this particular hinge could use a slight design change to make it better. I'm referring to the distance between the hinge stay mortise and the screw mounting hole. This distance is a bit too narrow, which creates a weak point between the screw mounting hole and the hinge stay mortise. I hope Brusso makes this slight design adjustment.

    Superior quality

    Extremely well made and excellent quality finish. Unless you are highly skilled at fitting quadrant hinges strongly recommend using the appropriate jig available from Brusso.

    Stop Loose

    Posted by PAwoodworking on Dec 19th 2016

    Nice looking hinge. I purchased two jigs to assure accurate installation.
    Routed, added slots for stop link and assembled box. Looks good, BUT on one of the hinges the stop link will come out of the hinge leaf and hang loose - I have to work it back in - don't know why this is happening, but maybe the mfr. needs to review the design.
    I'm a bit disappointed - what with the price asked and having to buy the jigs - I expected more.

    Rob, It's likely that the looseness you describe is because the link was installed upside down. We have updated the installation instructions on our website to explain the proper installation method.
