I have a mahogany desk from the '40s, with a fold down desk surface that has plaques me for years. The side hinges kept shearing across a screw hole, and I had then re-welded twice without success. Your brass hinges with a perpendicular reinforcing support fixed the problem for all time, and I could not be happier. They are so close to the originals, that visually, they melt right into the cabinet. Thank you for enabling me to reassemble a desk that was a wedding present to my father from his (somewhere he is smiling broadly, even though I stripped off all of the whitish antiquing he added to this desk in the early '60s)! Thanks again, from all three generations.
