This set of doors isn't something to rush, so I took all the time needed to get it right. I'm happy with it, although I have to add some stops at the ends.

I used Vector Cut nuts on the pulleys, and Ticky's square NBW's for the straps. The two signs I salvaged from a model by Sierra West.

With the NBW's, I drilled the .031" hole through so I can glue it from the back side, saving the possibility of messing up the front.

I also put a 1/8" piece of pine wood behind the doors while drilling so the doors or straps wouldn't pull away, a support.

Tony, your rust color is very realistic.

Tony,

You are a real rust-meister.

We owned a primitive antique table about the color of green you used; sold it a couple of months ago.

Thanks Mike, and if I had known, I would have asked for some color samples

Trying something new here. I am making working hinges, two sets, one in brass, the other in styrene. See which one holds up better. I don't want to use solder on the brass due to the small size, but I might try it out just the same later. For now, I'll use ACC.

The brass I am using is brass tubing, .012" inside diameter (will accept .012" brass rod) with about .032" o/d. The styrene I am drilling out a .015" hole in some .035" o/d styrene (packet says .030, but they vary, and .035 is what I pulled out).

If I remember right, I bought the tubing at Scale Hobbyist:

https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/browse.php?kw=brass,pipe

So, while drilling the styrene, my drill bent. Never happened before. I was just doing light pressure in a handheld pin vice into the ends of the styrene. I looked at it closely and found the flutes were much wider on this one than the same size bit I have in another set. Who'd have thought.



Anyway, back to the hinges, I think you can follow along with the pictures now.

First the tubing:




What I used to cut them:




After cutting to length, @.06" long, I kept them on a rod for safe keeping:


Glued one on:


and a "dry" fit, just one so far.

Working hinges! Where will it end?

I've broken my share of bits, but never bent one. You have a special talent, Tony.

LMAO. That's funny.

Wait until I put up a tutorial on doing the filaments for the light bulbs! Oh, wait, their LED's, never mind.

Tony,

Thatís a strange phenomenon, bending rather than breaking small drill bits. Perhaps youíre becoming unhinged.

Mike

Very nice. Did I miss the size of the flat bar stock?

Nice hinges! You won't find me making any, but yours look great. I like your door sliders too in one of the upper pictures. Nice work.

Mike, I have no doubt that I may have passed that threshold a long time ago

Carl, thank you, and I am sorry to say I forgot to mention that, but the stock is .005" brass sheet (4 x 10") from K&S Engineering. I put the stock in my NWSL chopper with a .06" spacing, measured the distance off using a drill bit, and made 10 or 20 or 40 some slices with a new razor blade, and smoothed the edges after with some sandpaper. I had bought many sheets at one time, up to .015", for anything from 40 cents to a buck fifty each. Finally have a chance to use some of it. Thank you for asking.

Rich, Thank you, the door sliders are sliding door hangers. If you look up on Google just door hangers, you'll get all those little pieces of card they give you at hotels to hang on the outside of the door for service or not.



Ted, what can I say? Thank you.
