Well today is my first 'Mass Womble'. I'm meeting up with some other 'Wombles' a few minutes walk away and then we're going to clear up the litter on the verges of one of the main roads into Leeds.

This afternoon I'm going to be experimenting with 'bullet hinges'.

Good luck with your shot at bullet hinges.

Where did I leave my ban hammer?

Sometimes known as a barrel hinge. Has anybody got any experience of using them?

Well did 2 hours of litter picking. There were 8 or so people out and one family stopped and joined in. I actually found a tiny little plastic zip-lock bag with white powder in it! Can't imagine what it is. And I'm not going to try it either!  ;D

that is absolutely not what americans call a bullet hinge. over here it's a weld-on hinge without screwplates, for tight clearanace hinges.

how do you set them up so that are in initial alignment?

I'll tell you when I've done it! I've seen a couple of videos but they aren't too clear. I've had some advice on Facebook.

If it were me installing those hinges, I'd have an alignment tool. I guess if they press in (I've never used them either) it might be a problem getting them aligned. But if they set in epoxy, I'd put them in both the lid and the box, and then open and close the lid...slowly and carefully. The epoxy wouldn't be cured, so the hinges would self-align.

Here's a different type of barrel hinge that is easier to install and adjust-

Well, shit, that borked.

Your advice mirrors what I have been told by others who have used these types of hinges. :)

Not a lot on today. Going to fix a couple of bits of my wife's jewellery. May cut the grass. Will take the dogs out for a walk. Roast lamb and baked potatoes for dinner :D

I am preparing an almost zero carbohydrate lasagna with cabbage leaves instead if pasta. Since eliminating carbs from my meals two weeks ago, I have lost more than 2 kg of the weight I've gained since lock-down.

You've been a bit quiet about the hinges. How did they work out?

I haven't tried them yet. I'm in a state of cogitation before action. I have always tended to do this when approaching something new. I turn an idea around my head for a while. It exasperates my wife!

I foresee flatulence in your future.
