2018-11-07 (W) Magnet Fish Spectacular

Two long continuous hinges, piano hinges, were purchased from the surplus store. One was installed in its entirety, and one was trimmed with a metal-cutting chop saw. The rough edges were smoothed on a bench grinder, and wood screws were used to put the two hinges on the top of the platform with care to align them with the seam.

There was a worry that the hinge would rip out of the thin wood, or not open properly from being too thick and interfering with the wheels mounted right over the wood joint. Fortunately, there were no issues opening and closing the platform. Carrying the hinge as a single unit was significantly easier than carrying it in two pieces.
