About this deal

A gauge number for screws in the imperial system corresponds to a certain fraction of an inch in diameter. To figure out the gauge number for a certain diameter, or vice versa, you have to look at a gauge guide to match up the "#" of the gauge with a fraction of an inch. You can find these guides online.

Take into account the type of screw head when you are measuring, because different screw heads rest differently on surfaces. These fixings are very similar to the rubber anchor nut in terms of the way they work. Once pushed through a pre-drilled hole, the centre screw is tightened. As it’s tightened it pulls the end of the fixing forwards, scrunching it up.Unfortunately fixing to plasterboard isnt as simple as fixing to a masonry wall mainly due to how brittle plasterboard can be. Hinges are an essential part of many objects from front doors to toy chests, they allow things to be easily opened and securely closed but at the same time remain in the correct position. As we have stated above, these hinges are made specifically for use with fire doors, but they can also be used for other doors, however they are vastly more expensive than a standard butt hinge.

These types of hinge come in a range of different lengths for a variety of different jobs and also different construction materials including steel and brass. A concealed, or kitchen cupboard hinge is recessed into the cupboard using a special drill bit called a hinge bore bit or Forstner bit. The centre, or pilot, part of the drill bit is very short so as to ensure the hole is drilled in exactly the right place but will not go right through the cupboard carcass. For full instructions see our project on how to fit concealed hinges here. Small countersink screws are normally used to fix it in position as the fact they’re recessed prevents them from binding and stopping the object closing correctly. Measure in mms from where the screw head sits to the tip to get the length. Start measuring from wherever the screw head would rest on the surface when it is fully screwed in. Use a measuring tape or ruler to measure from here to the tip of the screw.

T-hinges are normally used for external garden, workshop or shed gates and doors as they are good at carrying and supporting weights as the eay they’re constructed allows them to spread the weight over a large area. Wrap Around or Offset Hinge (Partially Concealed, Cabinet Hinge or Cranked Hinge)

Pivot or knife hinges are commonly used in furniture making, especially for desks, bureaus and the similar, mainly for lids and also for doors, especially those that need to swing both ways and those that are very heavy such as solid reinforced glass doors. As you now know how a hinge works and what different parts make it up, it’s now time to look at all the different types of hinge and how they should be used. These hinges are generally fixed between 2 items that then allows the central item to pivot and move and open and close.For example, a countersunk screw with a flat head will rest flush with whatever it is embedded into, so start the measurement at the top of the screw head.
