Rob Cosman's Wood-Hinge Drill Kit (Metric)
Master craftsman Dale Nish taught me how to make an amazing wood hinge for boxes. A wooden dowel is cut into segments, a shallow hole is drilled in the center of each dowel and a small pin is inserted into the hole for the dowel segments to pivot on.
I've made thousands of boxes using this style of hinge and I have designed four jigs to precisely drill the hole in the center of dowel segments (the most difficult task). These jigs are available as a complete kit or as four individual drill jigs.
Wood-Hinge Drill Kit (Metric)
My kit allows you to drill 1/16 and 1/8 inch size holes in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm dowels.
Kit includes 1/16 and 1/8 inch drill holders; 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm dowel holders; 1/16 and 1/8 inch drills; and a 1/16 inch hex wrench.
1/16 inch drill is typically used with the 6mm and 8mm dowels.
1/8 inch drill is typically used for the 10mm and 12mm dowels.
Opposing set screws hold the drill bit securely and allow for adjustment of the hole depth.
- Designed to be used with 1/16 and 1/8 inch welding rod as the hinge axle.

Hinge kit is great, arrived fast from half way around the world. yet to use. need to practice making "ROUND" dowels
The product is of a very good quality and works well, It gives you a centre hole for the steel pin exactly. Well worth the money paid. A good mitem to add to your kit.
Seems to have precise engineering Looking forward to using it
