Hinge


If the Snijlab living hinge design is going to be called the sninge then the MSRaynsford hinge design can be called the Minge, oh no, wait a minute....

The useless boxes used folded card as a hinge and I figured there had to be a better option. By turning the fingers of wood through 90 degrees I can get parts that are rounded in the right plane. Each finger had to be etched on the overlap so that they can wedge into the sheet but still move freely where they overlap. The fingers are then all pinned to allow the hinge to rotate. (svg here)
