Electrical Cabinet Hinge 3D Printed Replacements

The lower left hinge on the glass door over the electrical panel was mucked up. Dave thinks what happened was the hinge froze up and when they opened the door the, cap broke. And, wouldn’t you know it, the replacement hinge is obsolete. Dave went to get some WD40 to try and free up the frozen hinge but due to supply chain issues there is none to be found.  The hardware store has been out for weeks.  So he soaked it in engine oil and it freed up. Now the hinge but what about the broken cap?  Dave designed one up and had a friend 3D print it.

Worked great, and the door is now looking good!
