    Best Hinges Available

    Posted by Ron Carr on Feb 9th 2020

    I have used the JB103 hinges on at least 35 small jewelry boxes over the years. They are perfect for supporting the lid when open. I have built a jig to hold the top and back flush, then clamp a pair of templates between the two piece. Accurate and perfect fit mortises every time. They are the Best Hinges Available, and have been for years.

    Use the available template to cut the mortises with, otherwise you will have a sloppy (probably loose) install. The template is a little expensive but you can not do a proper install without it. I used a single template but two might be a little faster. Make sure you maintain the relative positions of the mortise when cutting the remaining mortises. I used clamps to make sure there was no movement of the two pieces. Do NOT cut the mortise deeper than the hinge leaf depth.

    Perfect for my use,
    purchased Jigs to go along with hinges and the hinges fit perfectly, now if I could just route square corners

    I've used these many times on the small boxes I make, they're the best I've found. Substantial and no slop.

    High Quality

    I purchased two sets of 103's for keepsake boxes I am making for my grandchildren. I compared the Brusso with other hinges at Woodcraft and Rockler. There is simply no comparison, these are the best hinges on the market.

    The installation instructions are not that good. For the price you pay for the hinges there should be better instructions; with and without the templates. I did a test piece with a handmade jig dowloaded from Fine Woodworking. i could not get a perfect cut. i purchased the templates and the installation was precise. You have to be careful even with the templates, they have to be perfectly aligned before routing. I also had to trim down the bushing to match the template. Brusso should offer a bushing that will work with their templates.

    All in all....I would purchase any product from Brusso, along wth the templates to make the installation perfect.

    Thanks Brusso.

    Great little hinges

    These hinges are perfect for small boxes. I have used cheaper hinges in the past, and they have caused me a lot of trouble. These precision made hinges are worth every penny. Some reviews have complained about the screws, but I had no trouble with them. I just drilled the correct size holes.

    as an amateur wood crafter, getting advice about your products from a pro. proved to be right-on. I will continue to use Brusso, the best hard ware on the market. I will replace the screws with square drive in the future.
