Does anyone know either what it is called or where I can get the following. I am looking for a hinge that will allow me to open a cabinet door and then slide the door into the caqbinet. Much as you would find on an old barristers bookcase.

I think I know what you mean. A chap in my unit did the same thing and he ended up making the mechanism himself, so perhaps a ready made product doesn't exist. It ended up working a treat for him, but he did have to put the effort in, making a mock up etc.

Ercol used a pair metal sliding drawer runners with a piece of vertical wood which they then mounted the hinges on for the door. Best photo I have of a TV cabinet.

@RichardG That's the sort of thing I'm after. I'm sure they have a name though for the complete mechanism.

Shoiuld have said door is to pivot in the vertical axis

Think I have it now - Pocket Door Slides

I think that might be a pocket door hinge?

For example (US site, apologies, but might be the right direction)

The bookcases were made, predominantly, by Globe Wernicke - Google and there's quite a bit of information and few pictures of the mechanism

Seems all the ones I can find are for massive wardrobe doors etc (30kg+). I am trying to find some for cabinets for the workshop. Sick and tired of all the ools having half an inch of crud after a while, so want to make some new cabinets with nice doors for behind and above the bench but don't want to smak my head all the time
