Comments about Commercial Table Leaf Hinge:
We used the hinges as intended, two per folding leaf of the tables. Keep that in mind when ordering: you need eight of these for the standard application. You'll need to mortise a slot for the spine of the hinge on each piece, but you don't need to mortise the whole hinge area. I hear there are some designs on the market that don't require any mortising, which would be nice.
There is no documentation showing proper use, so you had better know how they work ahead of time.
The hinges perform well. Be ready with some basic thin "shims" so that you can easily make adjustments for a perfectly level fit. Also use a Phillips "PH3" drill bit so that you don't strip the soft screws with a too-small #1 or #2 bit. If installed properly, you'll be pleased with the results. I have rated them 4 stars, but only because they are not the top-of-the-line, correspondingly high-priced option. They are an excellent and functional economy option for your needs. That can mean a lot when you need to outfit multiple tables.
