New at wood working and ask for some assistance
Posted by George Warren on Oct 20th 2016
Fine woodwork is rather new to me but I purchased two SR638 Brusso hinges and selected to install one set in a jewelry box the other in a music box but I did not want to use a jig or template but instead hand cut and fit the hinges into the box back and lid. I could not find any references for hand fitting. I could find a lot of instruction for hinge installation using a router and jig or template. Perhaps you can direct me to written or video side rail hinge installation instruction. Thank you in advance for giving my request your consideration.

I make presentation pistol boxes - sometimes for pistols worth thousands of dollars and Brusso is my go-to place for hinges and hardware. These hinges are of the highest quality and easy to install. You won't go wrong with them!

I have used several Brusso hinges and I haven't found any better. Also made in the USS You get what you pay for.
Customer Service is also GREAT

Hey, great hinge. I have now installed 4 sets on boxes and found them initially frustrating then easier as I discovered some solutions.
Initially, the brass screws kept breaking even after using the steel screw to start the hole. I had to drill the broken threads out three times and that led to a lot of cussing. The next time I installed the hinges, I put a small amount of oil on the end of the brass screw and never had any issues again with the heads snapping off.
I had better luck mortising out the lid to 1.100" vs. 1.125". The latter dimension tended to catch and bind when the lid was closed. The former dimension provided smooth closure.
