Basic Hinge Types was created by SteveB
There are four basic types of hinges. Always use the door as the a half mortise hinge would be mortised into the door and then surface applied to the frame. A half surface hinge would be surface applied to the door and then mortised into the frame.

Full Mortise: The standard hinge unless something else is called for. Mortised into the door and the frame.
Half Mortise: This is usually used on channel iron frames with a hollow metal or wood door.
Half Surface: This is sometimes used when you are installing a new door into an existing frame and the hinge locations are different.
Full Surface: This is usually used on tubular steel doors with channel iron frames.
