    This hinge as is with all Brusso products is of the highest quality made to exacting standards. I spend way too much time on making my boxes to not purchase the best available hinges.

    Easy to Install with Practice

    Posted by Tom McCurnin on Sep 28th 2019

    Even with the Brusso Template, this hinge is not easy to install, unless you spend an hour or so working with the template and some scrap. When using the template, make sure the box is pre-finished, because the hinge will determine where the sides of the box meet and they might be off by a 32nd, which can be cleaned up with sandpaper. The template is not perfect and is no substitute for practice. I used spacers to elevate each side of the box to the proper height. After using the template, spend a minute or two on each mortise squaring the corners. Then use a Vix-Bit or similar device with the smallest setting, a No. 2 bit, then pre-screw the holes. Then use the supplied steel screw and some beeswax to cut threads in the holes. Only when the hinge is fitted do you try to screw the brass screws. Bottom Line: Spend some time with the hinge and the template to get comfortable with it before trying it on a completed box.

    Superior Quality

    These are the best quality and performing highs I have run across. I really like the fact that they stop at 90-95 degrees. You have to be extra careful when using the brass screws. Predrill and use the steel screw provided.

    Great Hinges!

    I've used Brusso 101 and 102 hinges for several box projects. They never fail to please and impress regarding look, fit and finish.

    Brusso Hinge JB-102

    Posted by Larry on Sep 8th 2019

    Brusso hinges are simply the best hinges available. The finish, movement and repeatable dimensions are consistent from one hinge to another. Brusso hinges are my preferred hinge on my premium jewelry boxes.

    Excellent stop hinge

    Posted by John Felten on Aug 27th 2019

    I make many small boxes. Since discovering Brusso and especially the JB-102, I use it almost exclusively as my “go to” stop hinge. High quality and consistent manufacturing make for a perfect finish for my projects

    Excellent stop hinge.

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 1st 2018

    This is a wonderfully constructed hinge. The brass is very heavy gauge and the machining is excellent. A very precisely made item. A stainless starter screw is included and is very helpful in installation. Despite this I needed to obtain some extra bras screws and Brusso support was very helpful in obtaining these. Highly recommend the product.
