You are now ahead of the hinge game. If you want to learn even more about these items, you can use Internet search engines to dig up fascinating and little known facts on hinges. An example of such facts concerns the butt hinge. Not only does the butt hinge exist (really), but it is also available in two different varieties, the fixed pin version and the loose pin version. Beware of the trap that is so innocently being sprung before you. The fixed pin butt hinge means that you cannot remove the pin. The loose pin butt hinge means that you can remove the pin.
But when door hinges become a bit unhinged from years of use, they can not only cause doors to squeak, stick or rub, but allow heat to escape and cold to enter. Maintaining your door hinges is a simple process, something you can do once or twice a year. And it will keep your hinges working properly for years to come.
The settlement of the West brought on even more demand for hinges for all of the new homestead-building. Even the "etailgate"e of the iconic Conestoga wagon relied on hinges as did the toolbox sometimes mounted on the side of the wagon. Initially, the blacksmiths were concerned with production and quality. Eventually, they had more time to create items that were both functional and esthetically pleasing.
When you are shopping for door hinges to use, you may find yourself marveling at all the designs on the market, but you need to keep a few details in mind. There are two choices in door hinges - removable pin or fixed pin. Which one you want will depend on if you ever need to take the door off. Removable pin doors allow you pop the door down should you need to do something like move a piece of furniture through a doorway that is a little too skinny for the furniture pieces. Also make sure to look at how your door hinges are currently constructed and that any bolt on the new door hinges won;t interfere with your molding.
If you have concealed hinges and want to move to surface mounted cabinet hinges, chances are good that you;ll want to go with either semi-concealed hinges where only the frame wing is visible (the door part goes on the back side of the cabinet door), overlay hinges, or inset hinges. It just depends on the type cabinet doors you have.
Typically the type of cabinet door hinge you need is dictated by the type of cabinet door you have. There are three types of cabinet door; lipped, flush and overlay. A lipped door has a lip cut all the way around it. A flush door rests within the door frame and an overlay door rests on the door frame.
Today the best place to shop for hinges is not the local blacksmith or even the hardware store. It is online. Only by shopping online will you be able to see the vast selection of cabinet door hinges available as well as be able to compare prices, styles and finishes. So don;t drag yourself all over town instead shop from the comfort of your own home with the click of a button.
