Used in combination with table-extension slides, this mechanism
lets you build a folding table leaf that stores unobtrusively
beneath the table top. When needed, the leaf pivots and unfolds
into position once the table halves are separated.
Suitable for closed- or open-frame construction, the tube-hinge
mechanism is for leaves up to 1000mm wide.
The included 1-metre tube can be cut to length; it seats
on two side-mount posts, each with a bushing for smooth operation.
Includes four plastic brackets to secure the leaf and allow
it to pivot on the tube. The table leaf rests on a custom-made
wooden wedge-shaped ramp attached to a steel L-bracket/support
Folding leaf hinges let you build two-piece leaves that fold
for compact storage. Click on the "Acc" link below
