Door hinges


I called up a guy I know from a composite supplier today - it's been a few years since I've talked to him, and back then when I bought stuff from him he was very interested in the methods used for model aircraft construction etc. He'd visited my shed and we'd discussed our methods in building DS planes etc and I had showed him how we used Kevlar and Innegra in the layup and scored over it to make hingelines.

Anyway when we caught up today he said that he'd recently remembered me and had a laugh, when he saw this article.
