  • Metal hinge to wood-epoxy?

    I'm thinking of a couple of picture frame projects, and want an easel-type of back. I would use a small metal hinge, and thin wood, 1/8, or 1/4, for the easel. Would epoxy adhere the metal to the wood? I would think tiny wood screws would strip out the wood fairly easy, or maybe use the epoxy on the screws when I install?
    Appreciate the help!

    I have tried the epoxy way, attaching the hinges to the wood with epoxy and ... it did not work quite well, maybe it was the type of epoxy o maybe it was me, but the thing did not held enough and the hinges came loose. so what i did was a wooden hinge and that seem to work well and looked much better to me. I tried not to use metal as much as i can.

      I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

      I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

      Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
