I have had to make doors for kitchen cupboards. All went well until I drilled the hole in the door to take the concealed hinge and I don't want to make the mistake again.
Looks as if I drilled the holes to far from the edge of the door but I cant understand why I got it wrong. For 26mm and 35m hinges, how far from the edge of the door should the centre of the hole be? Lets say the cupboard carcass is 18mm thick and I want to have the door hide the carcass.

for 26mm hinge on an 18mm carcass, I drilled the centre of the hole 22mm from the edge of the door. When I did this, the door has to sit a long way off the carcass so it can open without the door hitting the carcass. Is this right?

I need to drill holes for 35mm hinges on an 18mm carcass. How far from the edge of the door should the centre of the hole be?

thank you in advance

22mm sounds about right for a 35mm hinge, (could be 21.5 or even 23mm - can't quite remember).

I've never used 26mm hinges, but if 22mm is right for a 35mm hinge I can see why it would be wrong for a 26mm hinge.

Find a bit of scrap and practice.

why would it be wrong of a 26mm hinge? the hinge seemed to have 9mm from hinge to edge of carcass then 13mm to the centre. what have I got wrong?

For a 26mm hinge the centre point should be 1/2 the cup radius plus 5mm. So this would be 13mm plus 5mm to give 18mm in from the door edge as your centre. :thumbright:

It leaves too much door *hanging oot the back* when you open it - that's why you've had to bring it off the carcass to make it work.

dewaltdisney,

Is that the same formula regardless for an 18mm or 15mm carcase?

Thanks

Steve

I am a bit out of touch, as I understand it the hinge mortice is the same for 18mm carcases but the mounting plate attached to the carcase is 0mm instead of the usual 3mm plate for 15mm carcases. I am not sure if there are better designed universal plates these days?? I am sure one of the guys on here will clarify?

The important point here is the 18mm carcase wall. Is the 35mm door mortice in the same position or slightly over? You will see I suggest the 0mm hinge plate mount to compensate for this thicker cabinet wall. What is the thoughts on this thicker carcase?
