What type of hinges needed

Post by Plumber » Mon Oct 01, 2018 10:20 pm

Hello

I'm building at ottoman the lid has a 10mm overlap on all four sides of the box

The rocker stay lid torsion hinge from the USA is suitable but too expensive

Any help on what type of hinge to use appreciated

Welcome. What angle do you want the lid to open to?

Thanks for the reply
I'm hoping to open the lid to 90 degrees if possible

Thanks

A piano hinge with a stay would work.
