Butt hinge orientation8/20
Does the butt hinge lay over the door or the face frame?
That hinge is intended for only the orientation shown on your cabinet or with both leaves fully exposed (one leaf on the faceframe and one on the door face). Whichever option would be up to your customer.
Mark B, if you go back to the first picture that shows hinges unmounted, you can see looking down, that the hinge is offset, and will cover some of the face frame or some of the door, depending on which way hinge is turned.
I was asking if there is a standard for which side the barrel goes over.
The 3 knuckle leaf goes on the ff. The 2 knuckle goes on the door.
Its done the same way on interior & exterior doors.
I agree with Adam.
I don't understand those hinges. They are obviously adjustable. However, it looks like you need to mortise both the face frame & door to maintain a reasonable 3/32 gap. How do you adjust the height if the hinge is in a mortise?
Its hard to tell the dimensions of the leaves without a ruler in the pic.
It would appear that the crank in the door leaf is to allow no mortise on the door yet mortise the frame side. Vertical adjustment on door w/o mortise.
Luck! I have the two knuckle leaf on the door.
These hinges are from hafele. See pics for size.
You do have to mortise both to get a nice looking 3/32 gap. I go a tiny bit deeper on the mortise to get just under 3/32.
Regarding verticle adjustment, I get things as close as possible from the start. If a door is in need of verticle adjustment (which is rare, as they are scribed in), I adjust the mortise a bit. I'll assumed large verticle adjustments were not possible with these.
