Don't you mean $.052 instead of .052 cents? (.052 cents is equal to close to 20 per penny.)

If it is at $0.052 + shipping, I'll take 200.
Thanks, Jeff

I finally got the shipping cost from the supplier and it is $74.00. Add that to the cost of $78.00 for 1500 hinges and the per hinge cost is $.17 each. So I will be selling any that I have extra for $.17 each plus the shipping cost. Once I get them in, I will be putting them into zip lock bags contain 100 pieces or 50 pieces depending on what those who have responded would like to have ordered.

Just so everyone is clear on this, I am not trying to make any money off of these hinges, I am just trying to help defray the cost of getting them cheaper that $1.00 to $1.30 each from either Woodcraft or Rockler.

Do you think a bag with 100 hinges will fit into a USPS small flat rate box?

Thanks for the update

Since these hinges are 5mm in diameter by 16mm long, I would see no reason that they would not fit into a USPS small flat rate box. That would mean that someone wanting 100 hinges would be charged around $17.00 for the hinges and $6.80 for the USPS shipping. So the total would be around $24.00.

That means that you are paying $.24 per hinges instead of the $1.00 to $1.30 that you would pay else where.

There is an interesting lesson here!!

Please note the offer is a FANTASTIC DEAL and I am NOT trying to knock the guy for his final offer--it is SUPERB!!!!

However, the quote from China was a nickle. Then, with shipping, etc, it tripled to 17 cents---and, because it is a small order, it will not incur Customs costs, etc. So, when you see these fabulous offers on Ebay and other "Chinese equivalents" (hinges at 5 cents), BE VIGILANT!!! Once all the costs are figured, it is almost guaranteed the cost will double and CAN be quadrupled.

Meanwhile, there is no guarantee on quality---Returns of merchandise are not feasible when the majority of the cost is shipping.

Just a FWIW!!!!!

Ed is correct.

I was going to order the 2500mw Laser Engraver from GearBest with the low cost expedited shipping, but decided to have it sent via DHL instead. Then I got an email telling me that I would have to pay and extra $52.30 to have it shipped via EMS.

So, instead I canceled my order with them and ordered the same item from BangGood for less money and with free expedited shipping.

My reason for ordering these hinges is that I have a lot of domestic hardwoods from a flooring store that went out of business that my wife got for $25.00 and I wanted to use the wood to make pen boxes. However, when I started looking for the hinges they were 10 for $10 or 10 for $13. So I hunted the internet and found a cheaper source. The only fly in the pudding was the quantity that I had to buy (1500). I would have to make 750 pen boxes to use that many hinges myself.
