Fundamentals of brass hinges—not just for jewelers
Students begin by learning standard hinge types and terminology followed by class exercises in cutting and silver-soldering brass. Discussion of variations on the common hinges fabricated in class such as half-mortis, non-mortise, strap, off-set, latch and lift off hinges and demonstrations of layout design, hinge-range movement calculations, sawing (with a jeweler’s saw), filing, silver soldering and surface finishing are included.
