Rob Cosman's Wood-Hinge Drill Kit (Imperial)
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 drill 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 individual drill jigs.

Great Customer Service
My experience was great! I have not used the kit yet but hopefully this weekend I can. I was surprised that Rob Cosman called me personally to thank me for doing briskness with him. That was very impressive and appreciated it a lot. I will be buying again from them!
Really good tool to have. It is a must have for doing wood hinges
Hidden hinge - first try
Hi, Just some feedback regarding the Rob Cosman's Wood-Hinge Drill Kit (Imperial). First shipping was very well organized. After watching the video's it wasn't that difficult to get a perfect result (see attached pictures) made this box using native Irish wood (ALDER Alnus Glutinosa, tree logs) I got from a neighbouring tree surgeon. I cut them up into boards and let them dry (about a year or so). Rob Cosman's Wood-Hinge Drill is the prefect tool to make the hidden hinge as it's very difficult to get the holes perfectly centered without. You see all kinds of wood working tools that really don't work as expected but this does exactly that. If you never made a box with hidden hinges than this is your tool to get, in conjunction with the available Video's to get you started! That it from a happy customer, Rain
Excellent Product as always
Yet again another top-quality product from the Cosman's. The capabilities of the tool will be higher than mine currently are for wooden hinges. But at least I know I can't blame the tools.
