    You need to take some pics. If there is an easier way, I'm all about it.

    Did a similar repair on mine years ago with slightly different tools and method but the same results.

    Only bought the hinge and some 1/2 inch screws that would match. Angle grinder to cut the hinge, wrench for the original screws, screwdriver for the new. Tape for alignment.

    Never took the box apart. Used the broken hinge to measure the hinge cut. Tape the broken piece to the hinge and the hinge to the box. Check for alignment. Put new screws in the box. Check alignment. Then the original screws back on sandwiching the old hinge piece.

    Screws barely show through the bottom of the box on the right half because of the taper.

    My hinge works great - as soon as you turn the knob the whole mess swings down 180 degrees and dumps everything.

    Where do you get the wire that inevitably breaks?
