I have a shelf pin jig from rockler, which has a self centering bit and works really nicely.

One of the features is that the hole spacing, and depth from edge means you can use them for hinges too.

So for a kitchen cab, just create the shelf pin holes, attach hinges, and they are perfectly aligned.

I got some 5mm euro screws and hinges from ironmongerydirect, however the holes in the hinges are too small, clearly for wood screws. I contacted them and they said they don't do any that have holes for the euro screws, and they can't get any.

Any idea where i can get some, as ironmongerydirect is sort of my goto place?

Thanks

Dave

That looks perfect, as long as the hinges will fit the attachment... I'll try one ;-)

Have you tried drilling out the holes in the ones that you have? I've done it in the past .
