I work in a door shop prehanging doors. Some of our hinges come from China(not my choice). Hinges are getting harder to get as they have shut down 2 or 3 manufacturing plants. As I understand it people over there are dying from some of the chemicals used in the finishes on the hinges. Maybe when they figure out that there are somethings that are necessary to do for safeties sake some things won't be so cheap from over there.
