Soss hinges on lazy susan doors?

My customer wants everything made in the USA, and I give him props. I cannot locate any 1 1/16" pianio hinges made in America, but did find SOSS hinges which are I believe. But no experience with them. My question is; do I prep the doors as I would for a piano hinge- same size?(width) will there be a gap between the two doors( major? ). Would the bullet style work(3) or should I use the 2 3/4" ones that require the dado? The doors are inset, and the Blum concealed will hit the pie Susan's when shut.

Are you hinging one door to the face frame and the other door to the hinged door?

Yes that's the plan.

With that arrangement I would rather have hinges that are adjustable. Piano, barrel, or Soss hinges are not. If you use the Soss, the one that gets mortised would be adequate to carry the weight, but as I said it isn't adjustable. You have to have perfect alignment on both sides.

Yes the soss hinge is an American company. For the application you are using I wouldn't use the bullet type. I would use the at least 3 2 3/4" hinges per door. There is a lot of leverage with two doors hinged together.

I believe there is a company called Rockford Press or something that makes piano hinges that are American made.
