Black butt hinge source?

Recommended Posts

Cant do typical brass which is easy to find. im looking for black need about a 1.5" to 2 " hinge 3-4 holes

Would prefer somewhere i can pick them up the internet sucks apparently this is not popular.

 

id settle for some black Piano hinge the one i ordered is ugly as crap though.

Have you though about changing the color of brass to black. I have never used the stuff but its called brass black. Let google be your friend.

Do you have a Rockler nearby? Mine carries a couple different lines of hinges, and one of them is 66% of Brusso quality. Can't remember the name unfortunately.

 

Edit: Remembered the brand: Vertex. Unfortunately looks like its only brass or satin nickle.

I know there's various ways to darken brass. 

I've watched a few of Adam Savage's (Mythbusters) videos on Tested where he ages/darkens brass through heat treatments.

There's also Chemical processes that will do it:

If you blacken the hinges yourself, it will give you more style choices.

Cliffside might have something like that.

or Richelieu has these . Great hinge I've used them for years. Same as the ones at Cliffside I was thinking about. Call me if you can't buy at Richelieu.

I have tried to blacken the hinges myself in the past, couldn't master the art in the first couple of times, but now I can do it (at least) to my satisfaction.

Yep,  Richelieu hinges have impressed me too. Have been using them for the last couple of years and never looked back.
