QUADRANT HINGE INSTALLATION

I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box lid is supported just past the 90 degree when open by the stop bar.

The fixture that I can up with has three parts the first is a corner block assembly that is used to lock the fixture into the corner of the box or lid with "C" clamps to locate the next two part of the fixture the routing templates. The first template is for cutting the mortise for the hinge. The second template is for cutting the mortise for the lid stay or stop.

The templates are located on the corner block assembly with the two 1/8" steel dowel pins and are attached to the corner block using a 6-32 flat head screw. The templates are made so that the corner block can be flipped over and mover to the other side of the box and the templates placed on top of the corner block. The templates are made to use a ¼" - 5/16" template guide and a 3/16" router cutter.

The router bit is not long enough to make mortise deep enough in bottom of the box for the lid stay or stop so I used a brad point drill to make the holes deeper in the box.

Jake,
Well done. These hinges are a nice alternative to the machined side rail hinges for a really nice box providing they can be installed properly. Your template is the way to do that for all the folks wanting a classy hinge solution, but who find it difficult to figure out the jig.

Terrific job with your jig! I too find that the quadrant hinges on jewelry boxes. I too searched and searched for installation jigs without much success. Brusso does have jigs for two sizes of hinges and at one time Beale had a jig that I understand worked pretty well but no longer offers. I have had the project of making a jig for the smaller more affordable quadrant hinges that are available from various sources. I think I may still fiddle around with a jig but in the meantaime I plan to make one of yours and use. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Apparently Lee Valley is not supplying the #00D81.01 any more. Does any one know of another supply? Lee Valley was selling them for $2.80 a set.

A relatively new supplier of box hinges is Andrew Crawford of England UK.
Check out his web page. He is a box-maker extrordinaire and has started manufacturing these hinges with a patented hinge stop especially for boxes.
They are a little exy, but first grade quality at about 38quid a pair.

Nice idea, I would also like a .pdf of your template. I bought my hinges from Rockler. Also, I noticed in your picture of your box, the interior compartment. I am in the process of making my first jewelry box and if you wouldn't mind, could you share how you made the interior compartment?

The templates are located on the corner block assembly with the two 1/8" steel dowel pins and are attached to the corner block using a 6-32 flat head screw. The templates are made so that the corner block can be flipped over and mover to the other side of the box and the templates placed on top of the corner block. The templates are made to use a ¼" - 5/16" template guide and a 3/16" router cutter.

The router bit is not long enough to make mortise deep enough in bottom of the box for the lid stay or stop so I used a brad point drill to make the holes deeper in the box.

I can supply a PDF of this fixture if anyone is would like one.
Great information. I've been struggling with getting an accurate installation.

Could you please send along the PDF?

Thank you!

QUADRANT HINGE INSTALLATION

I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box lid is supported just past the 90 degree when open by the stop bar.

The fixture that I can up with has three parts the first is a corner block assembly that is used to lock the fixture into the corner of the box or lid with "C" clamps to locate the next two part of the fixture the routing templates. The first template is for cutting the mortise for the hinge. The second template is for cutting the mortise for the lid stay or stop.
