    I’m looking for some hinges to finish off a toolchest and some dovetailboxes.
    My local options in the Netherlands are to put it nicely not great.

    I’ve been looking around and found a lot of hinges on Amazon, they are packaged in packs of 25-100. 4

    Does anybody have any experience with these cheap hinges?

    If anybody know of any good source for hinges in the EU, please be so kind to mention it.

    Joost.

    Hi Joost,

    I used these for a batch of dovetail boxes that i made for gifts, they worked fine.

    regards

    Hej Joost,

    No experience of precisely these hinges, but I have a negative one from inexpensive “brass” hinges offered by Amazon. They turned out to be gilded and not solid brass.

    Brusso delivers to the Netherlands. Prices may at first be offsetting, but contrary to most their hinges are all created equal.

    Niche Locks has been a nice experience.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    The Brusso hinges Sven mentioned look nice but are way out of my hobby budget. Nichelocks looks like a nice site unfortunately buying from the UK has become really expensive since the Brexit due to shipping and import tariffs.

    I did managed to find a local store called baptist that sells the type of hinges Barry mentioned for a decent price, they are probably not full brass but plated. Just wondering does that actually matter? Does wood react badly to steel/iron?

    I just keep these marked in my order lists, 20 extrude brass hinges, and get an oder when every the price drops. The cost ranges from $19 to $100 US. When you buy at the low end it is a dollar a hinge for solid brass hinges and screws.
