Re: Door Hinge Pin Replacement

Bushing/oilite sounds a very very good idea to me. Where did you get them from ? Are they sintered or made from brass ?

Furthermore it's not easy to drill absolutely centered and vertical. Then you need the proper pins which have to be made on a lathe in the correct dimension...

No way to get the pins out in situ. It's at least a hinge off job if you do it sequentially. Even with hinges off it's extremely difficult to get the pins out.

The new format is really nice plus the binding appears even more professional now.

By the way is the club planing to offer new binders as well ? Still have a few A5 ones but apparently not useable anymore...
