    Larry Brusso is my grandfather, and has passed away. His design and hard work shows in all his products. the screws everyone is talking about are NOT the ones he use to sell with the hinges. A company bought out Larry and Faye brusso years ago and has cut cost by replacing his high quality screws with low end cheep brass. you will be happy to know he was very detail driven, and would turn in his grave to know the company that bought him out is cutting corners. I hope you all enjoy his vision and namaste

    Great hinges for small-to-medium sized boxes. I used these on a jewelry case for one of our granddaughters. Very heavy brass, very high price tag.

    Comments about Brusso Large Box Hinge 1-1/4" L x 5/8" W, 2 piece :

    This hinge is way more than I expected! It's heavy, durable and easy to install. I used a very sharp chisel to make mortises and then an Exacto knife to clean them up and wound up with a beautifully mortised set. I paid attention to detail and wound up with a stunning gift and a "Wow factor" that's off the chart. I'm buying a couple more sets of these hinges "just to have for futute projects".

    I was nervous about buying these. Another reviewer said the screws are weak. After fitting the hinges and predrilling the screw holes they worked just fine. They have lasted through 2 fitting runs, final box sanding and now final finishing. They have added a nice finishing touch to the 8 gift boxes I have made for Christmas gifts.

    Comments about Brusso Large Box Hinge 1-1/4" L x 5/8" W, 2 piece :

    I bought 2 pair of these hinges. They are well made but I feel [$] is a bit overpriced for what you get. The brass screws are also entirely too soft and very easily stripped or broken...even with an almost oversized pilot hole being drilled.I used steel screws to initially fit them and they went in fine...but when I was ready to replace them with the brass screws 2 out of 8 broke. Brusso needs to make some stronger steel screws and brass plate them.

    This simple hinge is perfect for keepsake boxes, small jewelry boxes and other light duty. The relatively deep mortise adds extra support to this stop hinge, making the whole product more durable.
