Solid Brass Hinges OK, but not as expected., March 12, 2019 By Anonymous (Bismarck, ND)(Verified)
I bought these high priced hinges because they were highly recommended in an article on woodarchivist.com. The author said that the space between the closed leaves was the perfect 1/32 inch needed for inset doors on a fine cabinet. That is not the case. The space is exactly 1/16 inch. If I had known this, I would have used the other much less expensive solid brass hinges that I had on hand that had the same measurements. Beware, the hinges have been polished and black residue from the polish will get all over your wood if you don't clean them thoroughly. The phillips slots in the screws don't really seem to fit any drivers I have - and I thought I had everything. Otherwise these hinges are high quality, but very expensive - $50 for hinges for two cabinet doors seems excessive.
Note from Horton Brasses-gap in hinges is designed for a 3/32" reveal between door and face frame. Use a size zero phillips head screw driver for the screws.

Really good quality hinges as usual from Horton Brass. Nothing to complain about, overall very pleased and satisfied.
