Great hinges, crappy screws
Posted by Joe on Apr 8th 2019
Like everyone else said, these are the gold standard for hinges. I've been using them for many years. However, it does seem lately that the quality of the brass screws has really slipped. I predrill, pre-thread with the steel screw, and lube the screws, but still get at least 1 or 2 where the head gets stripped. I appreciate that Brusso includes a couple of extra screws just for this reason. It's just a shame they have to.
Stop box hinges

I can always depend on the high-quality of Brusso hinges. I sell my work and a solid brass stop hinge adds to my high standards of craftsmanship.
Best hinges around
Posted by Charlie on May 17th 2018
Brusso hinges are the highest quality that I've come across. I do have two quibbles. I bought the stop hinges and I don't like that the barrel has to stick way out past the back of the box. Also, the screws that they include with the hinges are not as nice as the hinges themselves. I don't use the screws that come with the hinges, I buy flat head slotted screws that have a bit more heft than the ones that they include. That said, I still think they are the best box hinges available.
Incredibly High Quality

You need Brusso hinges. There is no comparing them to hinges you are buying in the big box stores. They just feel better, they look better on your project, and they will last
Brusso Stop Hinges

I very much appreciate the quality of these hinges. I build fine joinery women's jewelry and men's "treasure" boxes that require stop hinges. My woodwork projects compliment Brusso hinges very nicely! *smile*
You sell a quality product! Thanks!
Best small hinge ever!

I've always had a hard time with hinges. These hinges came out flawless the first time!
The Very Best!

Simply the best money can buy. Puts a finishing touch on your box and make a statement about it that sets it apart from others.
JB 101 Hinge

I do love these hinges. I will only use them from now on for any box I make. They look great and you can't beat the function they provide

Hinges were perfect! Customer service was even better - even though I missed the sale deadline by about 12 hours, they gave me the sale price anyway. Merry Christmas to Brusso and I hope 2018 will be even better for them.
The Only Hinges
Posted by Unknown on Jul 16th 2017
These hinges are far and away the best quality and value I could find. They are finely constructed and have a very solid stop with no play. There are cheaper hinges, but they will not compare to these. If you are putting in the hours of labor to craft something beautiful, these are the only hinges that make sense.

Very nice and well made hinge.
Nothing cheesy about this.
My go to small box hinge

Great stop hinges. Very easy to install.
The visual results at the back of the box and on the interior are very nice.
Wonderful product with consistent quality not found on other hinges.
Quality build, appearance, and function

Perfect function of what was required and accomplished. Hinges worked as advertised and they look great!
Decades Long Quality
Posted by Gordon Riedesel on Sep 1st 2016
In my hardware stash I have a one of a pair of small brass ball catches from a project way back in the 20th Century. I needed one for an anniversary gift and wanted top quality hardware. Back then, you got the best from Larry and Faye Brusso. Even though the packaging is showing its age, the Brusso hardware in it is still the best. I've purchased several Brusso hinges over the years and will always use Brusso for my best work. It doesn't matter if the hinge is a JB-101 or a larger model, they remain the best available. Use cheaper hardware for your seconds and rejects but use Brusso for the work you take pride in.
small brass hinges

very nice. the brass screws furnished with were too long so had to buy shorter ones.
Great Hinges for small boxes!
Posted by Bill Balleza on Mar 4th 2016
I use these all the time on jewelry/keepsake/cigar boxes I make. Fine Woodworking has an article online that shows you how to make a jig to route mortises for these JB-101 hinges. They are strong enough to use only two on a box 12"x6"x3". Nothing like solid brass hinges, and well worth the price.
Good solid stop hinges
Posted by Derek Warmack on Nov 6th 2015
I put these on a ring bearer box for a commission and they looked great. Really solid hinges with no slop.

We LOVE Brusso hinges! the JB-101 and JB-102 hinges are standard equipment on our heirloom boxes.

Superior Quality Cabinet Hardware
Posted by Mr Denis Grant on Aug 22nd 2015
I welcome this opportuinity to comment on Brusso hardwere.
I have just made two tea chests designed by Doug Stowe ( usa) . the finished boxes look beautiful when fitted with your high quality butt hinges.
This type of quality is not available in Australia, and I doubt any where else in the world. well done to all at Brusso.
kind regards Denis Grant.
