Lazy susan install8/18
I have a job that requires a 32" kidney shape lazy susan. I have never installed one of these. The problem lies in that the hardware is supposed to be supplied by the homeowner, who lives in Canada, and the job is in Mexico. He wants to bring it with him in December but he also wants his kitchen including granite counter top installed when he arrives. I am thinking it is very hard if not impossible to install the LS after the cabinets and counter top are in place. Also he increased the height of his base cabinets by 2". I'm pretty sure they also need special face frame hinges. Any ideas or opinions? Thanks
If you are talking about the 2 trays and a pole lazy susan,then yes it can be install after the fact.Done it many times.
Concerning the hinges. Not because the height of the door, I guess I expressed my idea poorly. the owner is supplying an off brand 35 cup hinge for face frames. They open to 105°, 1/2" overlay. The doors for the LS need a hinge that opens 180° and what about the hinge that connects the 2 doors ?
This home is in a place where none of this type of hardware is available so I can't run over to a supplier and get what I need.
I don't doubt your word but how do you get the 32" trays over the pole and through the opening in the face of the cabinet?
Kriss, we have put kidney susan after the fact, place both trays inside cabinet than insert pole thru each shelf and place pole in socket on floor and ceiling. Lift center shelf to correct height and secure hub bearing. In regards to hinges, I would take extra pair of 170' hinges with plates and a pair of pie cut hinges along. Cheaper to put back in stock than not finish the job. Good luck, Scott
Thanks Scott, I am in Mexico so acquiring the hinges is part of the problem. I'd sure like to be able to do all boring and fit the doors before installing. I'll be making a trip to Guadalajara (500 miles r/t) so I'll see what I can find.
Go to www.richelieu.com and see if you can open an account from the nearest warehouse. They will have whatever you need. Is the kitchen a faceframe or frameless? You will need 2 170 degree hinges plus 2 corner bifold hinges for the second door as well as hinge plates, harold. If you cant find them, let me know and i can send them to you from my stock. My shop is in Ft. Lauderdale and shipping cant be that much. Harold.
Why not just install super susans and put the center one an adjustable shelf?...
No service calls, easy to install, looks better than plastic, no pole and they rotate independently...
never let the homeowner supply anything thet are not also installing themselves.
