  • 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 ?

    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.
