Editor's round-up, Large Neat Hinge.
These large brass neat hinges are ideal for larger boxes. Not only are there six screwholes rather than the standard four for each hinge, the screw size is also a very robust no 4 instead of a no 3. The length of screw is therefore 25mm rather than 16mm or 5/8 inch. This additional length provides greater support, anchoring the hinge to the box. The hinges are 60mm long x 9.5mm wide, with a 3.85mm leaf thickness. The standard 9.5mm or 3/8“ cutter can be used to fit these mighty hinges. (NB there will be an additional postage charge to anywhere outside the UK). See write-up in Furniture & Cabinetmaking - Nov 2014 (issue 224) - Pg 11, Editor's round-up, Large Neat Hinge.

New Neat LockNow in Stock
Brass Box Lock
Dimensions are as follows: - 8mm wide polished plates 76mm long 6mm body 31mm deep 16mm distance to pin. Includes 1 Lock, 1 Key (spare keys are available) 2 sets of screws and basic delivery in UK. Min wood thickness 10mm. (NB there is an additional basic postage charge outside the UK).
The Neat Lock Evolution is simply the best looking Box lock around. It is machined from solid brass or stainless steel and is the perfect companion to the Neat Hinge. The polished plates have no exposed lugs and the screw holes, like the Neat hinge, are set slightly below the surface for that neat finish. It features a smooth locking action with a very satisfying "click”, using a precision made stainless steel compression spring which will provide a lifetime of consistent operation (rather than the traditional sprung metal which can lose its spring over time). It also has a traditional shaped keyhole for those who do not want to see the case from the outside when cutting a traditional shape in the escutcheon. The reverse of the lock also has a centre line to make the marking out of the pin position easier.
