Kitchen Cabinet Hinges
I just bought a house that was built in the 40's and the previous owner apparently didn't like the kitchen cabinet doors so she took them off. The hinges are nowhere to be found. I bought new hinges for them and they make the doors not fit. It looks like the inset is 7/16" instead of 3/8". Is there a store that would carry hinges that don't comply with modern standard sizes?

Is it the reach or the depth that is giving you a problem?

The reach I guess. The hinges cause the door to be too wide for the opening.

3/8 was the standard on the old ones too. Cutting the doors to fit again may be your onely hope. Have the doors been painted a few times?
