Installing Barrel Hinges Help

I am in the finishing stages of a red oak bread box. I settled on barrel hinges and have the holes done.
I had planned on using epoxy but am concerned that the epoxy may muck up the mechanism. I dont think the set screw will hold it well enough. Its not a tight fit (mm hinge vs standard bits)
Any suggestions?

Epoxy will work. Just use it sparingly and try not to get it where the hinges show through the barrels. I've done it before by just putting a drop or two into the bottom of the hole, but that only works if you drilled to exactly the right depth.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

I've had that happen. I wouldn't recommend gluing them in, as they may need a final adjustment, or maybe a need to be removed. I just wrapped the barrel with masking tape enough to make them fit tight.

I plugged the ends with parafin wax. Worked!
