Small Drop Leaf Table Hinges are designed specifically for tables with a hanging leaf. This hinge has 2 different length leaves and a rule joint. Drop Leaf Table Hinges are steel. Hinge pin is fixed. Hinge leaves have countersunk holes. If needed use with steel drop leaf table supports.
Typically the protruding joint, also know as a rule joint, is mortised into underside of table top. This mortising provides a flush surface enabling leaf to swing clear
They look neat, but the approximate 1/16" lateral play between the leaves is somewhat worrying
This was my third attempt at getting proper drop leaf hinges for an antique coffee table I rescued from the dump. One set had the hinges upside down, the barrel pointing up; the next was way, way too wide, although they specified it was to my specs. This one fits! And they arrived right on time.
Happy with the hinges. Just what I needed for my project.
Items as described and were shipped promptly...thanks Paxton Hardware
The hinges should have countersunk holes for screws.
The countersink holes were so minimal they shouldn't have countersunk at all. The screw heads stick out like there is no countersink.
