Replace the hinges

a renewed cabinet

    hinged hanging kitchen door    

If we wanted to install new hinges on an old cabinet or replace traditional hinged ones with self-closing ones that hold the door and keep it closed we can do it with a little patience.


It will be necessary to position the door in the correct position with respect to the furniture and to mark the position of the hinges with great precision.


In order to install this type of hinges, we must not only apply the plates with screws but also make a small and precise milling on the door.


This operation can be performed with a drill press equipped with hole height and limit switch adjustment to avoid drilling the door completely and ruining it.
