For the Blum hinges I've learned I need the clip, mounting plate and screws, but there are 8 different mounting plates for a frameless 0mm height for an inset door. Any recommendations? This one is the most popular if that matters. I know I need to switch from soft-close to free swing if I do the push release.

I love blum hinges but their manual is required reading if you plan on using their hinges À la carte.

Use this plate https://www.woodworkerexpress.com/blum-0mm-cam-adj-wing-wood-screw-plate.html

I'd avoid the one you linked as the part number is not in their manual. 173H7100 is in their manual. Secondly the cam adjustment is worth every extra penny. All 22 of them. I can confirm you have the right hinge selected for soft close.

Finally if you decide on the push to open the free swing hinge is 70T3750.TL https://www.woodworkerexpress.com/blum-110deg-clip-top-hinge-free-swing-inset-screw-on.html

Alternatly the 170 degree hinge could be a consideration. 71T6650 with a 9mm plate 173H9130.06

Thanks! Of course 173H7100 is sold out a lot of places. I'll keep looking for a place that has all of the parts in stock.

not sure color matters but this one claims 7-10 days. There should be enough adjustment on the hinge it's self that you could just go with the non-adjustable one. I almost always find that I have to adjust the base plate though. For the price go with the cheap now and order the adjustable ones if you need it?

I might have the ones you need sitting unused in my shop. If i remember tonight I'll check for ya.

Found them in stock at TDD Hardware. Paid about $20 more because of shipping than Woodworkerexpress but still saved about $20 compared to Rockler.

As I daydream at work, I'm wondering if it wouldn't make more sense to use the tablesaw? I would need to make a sled so I don't destroy my Incra Miter Express but that's not the end of the world.

If the TS is dialed in for the angle you are going to cut, that sounds like a better option to me.

Weird, I swore I made a post last night but must have closed the window before it posted. TD Hardware called and said they had the mounting plates but not the hinges. They called again about 5 minutes later and said to use a different hinge with a 18mm offset plate to achieve the same thing. Placed an order with Rockler for a hinge jig, screws and vex bit.

@MarkJ I'll work on dialing it in on some scrap once I get the sled built.

Last night I made up the fences for the sled and got the runners cut and attached to the plywood sled. Tonight I'll attach the fence to the sled and finesse the runners. Picked up a caliper for the 5 cut test but the shims won't be here until tomorrow. Not sure how to best do that on a 45* cut. Maybe dial it in at 90 and then make the 45* cut?

Use a scrap piece and do a test on the bore hole location and hinges before mounting everything up. It's a good practice to make sure that there isn't anything that will bite you.

I would dial the test cut in at 90 and then cut the 45. Though that may ruin the zero clearance of the sled so maybe dial it in at 45. Dialing it in at 45 shouldn't be any different than at 90.

Yes, will definitely be testing the hinges on scrap first.

I think dialing it in at 45 will be doable. I was thinking measuring the 5th cut would be difficult since it's not rectangular but using the calipers on a parallelogram is the same thing. Sometimes I just need to actually see things for it to make sense.

Got the sled squared up at the 45* angle. Only went the wrong way once with adjusting it. 
 

Hinges also came in and I think they’ll work out nice. Glad that issue is resolved. 
 

I need to flatten the ~16” panels for the case as they’re slightly off and causing the test miters to be off in spots. Since I only have a 13” planer I’ll try sanding everything to flatten any inconsistencies out. Used a weight to keep the panels flat when I cut the test miters which seemed to help.
