Description:We are designing a thick gauge aluminum mailbox (0.080” aluminum (2024 or similar) front and back; ¼” (6061 or similar) lid). We are having problems finding an off-the-shelf hinge for the lid that meets our evaluation criteria (below). Lid is a thick, flat piece of aluminum, no bends. Final product will be powder-coated.
Wants:1. slow-close hinge action required but doesn't force lid to "stay-open".
2. hinge should operate between -30c and +40c, corrosion resistant, aluminum.
3. Be able to affix to our 1/4" thick aluminum lid with either blind-tapped holes or weld in place (assuming heat from weld doesn't damage hinge).
4. be an elegant solution, requiring minimum manufacturing procedures.
5. Lid is angled down to front at 65 degrees from back of box - hinge needs to operate within full 115 degree range.
6. Hinge can't bump lid into wall or box when open - box will be mounted with 0.5" bump-out from wall
7. be a cost-sensitive solution to help keep overall costs down
8. off-the-shelf solutions preferred

Spa/health club annex
Convert a 2D, basic floor plan of spa/health facility into a 3D floor plan of spa/health facility. The project will require some creative adjustments to accentuate the look and feel of the facility to align with a spa-like environment. The addition of furniture items typical to spa/health settings will be required. This is a concept project and dimensions may change in the future as the project develops. The final objective/goal is a 3D model that can be used to confirm final dimensions, details, and other information with a larger stakeholder group as the project develops to a final stage of execution.
Dwarven Forge Bracelet
A bracelet design to complement our long standing line of Dungeons and Dragons/fantasy rpg terrain. Please view our website -- dwarvenforge.com -- to develop a sense for our product. You can also look at our recent Kickstarter campaign -- http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1745470388/1826778276?token=2a7841d2 (see "Game Tiles" on kickstarter.com). I'd start with a bangle, probably with one main charm, a small crystal and a small charm with our logo -- kind of like "Alex & Ani" level of complexity, but for gamers. The main charm should probably be metal. The bracelets are for women, gamers or partners of gamers.
2-3 bedroom Apts.
Need creative assistance in a floor plan design that flows well yet includes all of our needs for our upcoming second level addition. It is literally a blank slate to work with! Dimensions are approximately 32' x 26'. Addition will need to have two bedrooms, full bath and a master suite (with bath) and walk in or walk through closet. Will be able to provide a lower level sketch that shows stair location, bathroom, etc... Only requirement is that new bathrooms stay above the lower level bathroom for plumbing requirements. Please apply if interested and reach out with questions!
