IF THE EXACT PLACEMENT OF THE BORE HOLES IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR APPLICATION, WE HIGHLY SUGGEST THAT YOU ORDER THE DOORS WITH NO HINGE BORING, and BORE THE HOLES YOURSELF 'ON-SITE' on a "DOOR-TO-DOOR" BASIS.

OUR STANDARD DISTANCE FOR HINGE BORING DOWN FROM THE TOP AND UP FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR TO THE CENTER OF EACH HOLE WILL BE BETWEEN 3" and approx. 3 1/8" (75mm on average) AND IS ONLY GUARANTEED TO BE WITHIN +/- 1/4" OF THAT DISTANCE!

  • FOR AN ADDITIONAL $1.00 PER HINGE HOLE, WE CAN MOVE THE HINGE BORING TO A DIFFERENT DISTANCE FROM THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE DOOR.

  • YOU MAY ADJUST THE DISTANCE TO THE CENTER OF HOLE FROM 2 1/2" - 6". THIS RANGE IS LISTED IN THE DROP DOWN MENU ON THE HINGE BORING PAGE.

    THIS, HOWEVER, IS NOT, AND NEVER WAS, MEANT TO ALLOW YOU TO SIMPLY SLIDE YOUR OLD DOOR OFF ITS OLD HINGES AND SLIDE YOUR NEW DOOR BACK ON WITHOUT MOVING THE HINGE TO MATCH THE BORED HOLE.


THE SPIRIT OF THE HINGE BORING IS SIMPLY TO ALLOW YOU TO CONVERT YOUR OLD EXPOSED HINGE CABINETS TO THE NEW CONCEALED HINGE STYLE.

  • WHEN COMPARED TO THE COST OF THE DOOR, THE $1.00 PER HOLE HINGE BORING IS AN INEXPENSIVE COURTESY WE PROVIDE, SO WILL ONLY BE GUARANTEED TO BE WITHIN 1/4" +/- OF THE DISTANCE YOU CHOSE! (this policy is to prevent unnecessary, and unfair remakes we've made due to a bore hole being off by 1/16")

    WE CANNOT REMAKE A DOOR BECAUSE THE HINGE BORE HOLE WILL NOT SLIP DIRECTLY ONTO YOUR ORIGINAL HINGES THAT ARE STILL ON YOUR CABINETS!

  • IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE YOUR OWN ORIGINAL HINGES, WE MAKE NO GUARANTEES THAT YOUR HINGES WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH OUR HINGE BORING.

  • IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE YOUR OWN ORIGINAL HINGES, EXPECT THAT THEY WILL HAVE A VERY GOOD CHANCE OF NOT WORKING WITH OUR BORING PATTERN.

  • WE USE THE 'BLUM' BORING PATTERN SHOWN IN THE PICTURE BELOW.

  • IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON USING 'GRASS' BRAND HINGES, YOU SHOULD EXPECT THAT THE SCREW HOLES WILL BE IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PLACE.

  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO GUARANTEE THAT OUR HINGE BORING WILL MATCH YOUR HINGES, SO WE WILL ONLY GUARANTEE THE HINGE BORING WILL FIT THE HINGES WE SELL.

AGAIN, THE WHOLE PURPOSE AND SPIRIT OF OFFERING HINGE BORING IS SO YOU CAN CONVERT YOUR OLD EXPOSED HINGES TO NEW FULLY CONCEALED HINGES.

  • Standard Concealed Hinge Boring: If A Door Is Bored @ 3 - 3 1/8" Symmetrically, It Costs $1.00 Per Hole.

  • SPECIAL" Concealed Hinge Boring: If Door Is Bored At Anything Other Than 3 - 3 1/8", it is a "Special Bore" and Costs $2.00 Per Hole.

  • "ASYMMETRICAL SPECIAL" Concealed Hinge Boring: If The Door Is Also Asked To Be Made Asymmetrical By Putting The Holes At Two Different Heights (to clear an obstacle, for instance) The Door Is Then Considered A "Special Special Bore" And The Boring Costs Rise To $4.00 Per Hole. ($8.00 per Door for a 2 Bore Door) CALL US FOR THIS OPTION!

THIS IS THE 900C HINGE (1/2" Overlay)
A 6 WAY ADJUSTABLE HINGE THAT IS USED ON CABINETS THAT HAVE 'FACE FRAMES'. IT WILL FORCE THE DOOR TO OVERLAY THE 'FACE FRAME' OF THE CABINET BY 1/2" ON THE HINGE SIDE. GENERALLY, THE DOOR SHOULD BE ORDERED 1" WIDER (AND HIGHER) THAN THE OPENING ON THE FACE FRAME. THIS WAY THE DOOR WILL OVERLAY THE FACE FRAME BY 1/2" ON THE HINGE SIDE AND 1/2" ON THE HANDLE SIDE, AS WELL AS THE TOP AND THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR.

If the CLOSED, HANGING door has the HINGES on the LEFT, the door is BORED "LEFT". "Bored" Left and "Hinged" Left mean the same thing.. HINGE SIDE DOESN'T MATTER ON SYMMETRICAL DOORS, BECAUSE THEY CAN BE FLIPPED TO HINGE RIGHT OR LEFT.

STANDARD HINGE BORING for ALL WOOD DOORS shown below*

3/32" 'Pilot Holes' (for screws) will be substituted for the 8mm 'Dowel Holes' shown in the drawing below if you do not order hinges from us.
IF YOU ORDER HINGES FROM US, WE WILL SHIP, AND BORE FOR, THE 8mm DOWELED HINGES
*RTF (Rigid ThermoFoil) Doors come either with "CUP HOLE ONLY" or "45mm DOWEL HOLES". they do not drill 'Pilot Holes' like the wood doors.
