  • Blind Hole limit

    I need to attach a hinge to our front panel.

     

    I would prefer to attach the hinge to the back side of the panel using ten #6 tapped holes.

     

    While it would probably be ok to use through holes, I would like to use blind holes to hide the end of the #6 screws.

     

    I am using 4mm black anodized material.

     

    How deep can I make the blind hole without breaking through?

     

    3.9mm ?

     

    Thanks

    The deepest blind hole you can make for your particular application is 3.5mm.

    Thank You for the information.

     

    Unfortunately, the screw would hit bottom at 3.5mm

     

    A through hole isn't a big deal. I will do that.
