The handles and hinges are of good quality and worked as expected
I bought the plans because I knew that material isn’t cheap and I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. As soon as I downloaded the drawings I had exactly what I needed , what I didn’t expect was the support they offer. If you have any questions they answer them. And as I have found out by talking to frank with a calculator in my hand as he rattled off numbers, a lot of math goes into what they do. If you’re serious about building a smoker order the plans they cost way less than one mistake will cost you in time and materials.
