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.
- You may also like to purchase a copy of my video "Wood-Hinge Box" which shows you step-by-step how to build a wood-hinge box and use my drill jigs to create a wood-hinge. Go to the "Videos" collection to and add this video to your cart.
The Kit may or maybe not be fit for purpose, I feel abandoned by RC having asked a question of available of Metric Cove router bits 1/4 " shank from your store. But after two weeks of receiving no reply I can only conclude, that once you have my cash you are then unwilling to offer a solution to those of us that have purchased the Metric version. Hope this finds you well. R C Town
Hi Rob, I rec it today 4/June and only had time to test it. It worked very good on bit of dowel,I am sure it will do my hinges without any problems.Thanks for seamless delivery, John Gregson.
