Try your local hardware store or a Trade catalogue. The bigger stores here carry pretty good ranges.

Wood-working web sites/groups?

Do you have a pic?

Any help?

Alistair, have a search for a company called Brusso, I'm pretty sure Classic Hand Tools who are in Suffolk supply this brand of hinges. Failing that Isaac Lord and Haefele who are both on line do a huge range of brassware.

Are you refering to the type for drop down doors which then hold the door horizontal?
