Thank you Cynthia and John for restoring older posts in other-wooden-toys categories.

Peter V,
the magnets used were approx 1/2" dia x 1/4" which general purpose button magnets, the sort you might find on fridge magnet ornaments.
I steered away from the smaller more powerful ones to avoid swallowing issues if accidental breakage occurred.
 Please feel free to copy, ( I do). Afraid there are only rough sketches, no fancy full plans like John does. I can email you what I have if you wish.
Alan

Do you know of RC hinges, example

https://www.motionrc.com/collections/hinges 

(and, depending of the type of hinge you use- or choose, slot cutter(s)

these ones are expensive, but the video is (a sort of) instructive. )I never glued my hinges, secured them with dirlling al little hole and then a toothpick right through, sanding flush and paint/covering with oracover.

Hi Peter,
thanks for the tip re R/C hinges. I am familiar with these items from my model airplane days.
 Had some difficulty getting my new Mac to email you some design info, so please check the post titled "Help" by russandray where I have posted some dxf and pdf sketches.
I put them there as he was the first to request them.
Hope these are of help
Alan
