    Small Tool Gloat

    I've been wanting to make wooden hinges but trying to line up the hinge pin and make it work smooth never seemed to work. I found the Incra Hinge crafter on Amazon for $10 cheaper than the Incra website and it came today.
    What surprised me was the mass of it, it's very heavy, machined from billet aluminum with steel inserts to drill thru.

    That is neat. The color alone will warm up your shop.

    How thin can the wood be and be practical to make a wooden hinge? I am assuming some fairly tight grained wood.

    Enjoy and have fun with your toy.

    Good catch Dan. Are you planning to make any drop leaf tables?
    Best regards,
    Toni
