In constructing a box I needed a hinge that would carry the cover farther away from the top than the or- dinary double-leaf hinge. I found that two pieces of 1/4i by 5/8-in. wrought iron, attached in the manner shown, answered the purpose. By using roundhead screws it was unnecessary to countersink the metal. - Contributed by James M. Kane, Doylestown, Pa.
