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 1.5mm and 3mm size holes in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm dowels.
Kit includes 1.5mm and 3mm drill holders; 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm dowel holders; 1.5mm and 3mm drills; and a 1/16 inch hex wrench.
1.5mm drill is typically used with the 6mm and 8mm dowels.
3mm 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 use with 1.5mm and 3mm welding rod as the hinge axle.
