Hi – I would really love your help on sorting out the question of which hinges to use on inset cabinet doors in dining room built-ins for 100 year old house. Here are 3 I have found that Classic Brass makes: 1. Mortised with screw holes that allow adjustment – I noticed that some cabinet companies use mortise hinges and only mortise one side. These are extruded brass. View Image 2. Non-mortised extruded brass which do not wrap to the back of the door. View Image 3. Non-mortised full wrap and partial wrap. These are steel, not extruded brass. I have not seen these in person yet, but have seen some other Classic Brass non-mortise that are made of steel that seem less smooth functioning than the extruded brass. View Image I am leaning toward non-mortised. The way things have been going on this job I am concerned about errors in mortising that could lead to further delays and possibly waiting for doors or cabinets to be re-made. Which would you recommend and why? Any info on function, durability, adjustability, gap size, looks would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link for a page with many Classic Brass hinges at bottom: http://www.myknobs.com/georgetowne.html
