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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.
*RESPONSE FROM BRUSSO*
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.
small brass hinges

very nice. only issue was the supplied brass screws were too long so wound up buying shorter ones.

I tried an inexpensive quadrant hinge that tore itself apart the first time I opened the box.............. never again. These did the job and added class to the project
