for an entry on my website, http://www.woodworkinghistory.com here are two questions-on the european cabinet hinge-addressed to any old time cabinetmakers on LJ:

When did the euro (concealed) hinge first appear on the American market?

When was it converted to the American face frame application, and why?

your attention is appreciated

Ray,

Did you get any feed back on this? I've been trying to think when these things first came to the Manitoba market and can't seem to remember when I first noticed them. I wasn't big into doing woodworking back then so didn't notice like I would now :)

no, mark, didn't get any feedback until just now, with gerry's post above, and for which i am appreciative. lately, i have been occupied with other topics, especially the victorian era, beginnings of arts and crafts, around that time.

following up on your comment about blum's appearance in manitoba, i sympathize.

new develpments, many times, do occur almost unnoticed by us, because no attention is given them.

all of us-i hope-noticed the cordless drill-because it was really revolutionary-but probably did not notice when drills moved away from the jacob's chuck to that new chuck, where you tighten and untighten the bit by holding the chuck and engaging the drill's trigger, so that in effect the "drill" loosens/tightens the bit.

if anyone has any thoughts about that new chuck, please let know.
