What is the cost to punch holes into hinges?
The answer depend on a number of factors. We have some products that are
punched as a primary operation and the cost to put holes in them is close
to zero. Most holes are punched as a secondary operation and the
exact price depends on how we are punching the holes (one at a time or
multiple), how many holes per part and how many total parts are
in the lot. Let us have a sketch or print and a quantity and we
will be pleased to quote. [BACK]
I am interested in purchasing a piano hinge that is not the garden variety.
It needs to be decorative and should look like chrome. Can you help me?
We have a
couple of ways to go for a "decorative" hinge. You can look
at the selections we have of polished
stainless steel continuous hinges. These are made from a type
304 stainless and are fairly corrosion resistant. A typical use would
be on boats. If you don't need parts that are that rust resistant,
you may check out our pre-finished
nickel plated steel hinges. These are excellent for indoor
use. Both have a chrome-like appearance - a bright silver color
- and are readily available from stock. Both series are supplied
with holes for flat head wood screws.

What is a double wrap hinge?
A double wrap hinge is one where the leaf wraps around the pin and back
over itself (see cross-section diagram). Both leaves are doubled this way.
This makes a very strong hinge that cannot unwrap. A typical
application would be on school lockers where students hanging from the doors
don't distort the hinge.
