Hinge Jig – Hints and tips

Here are just a few tips to assist you in the use of my Hinge Jig.

  • It’s a good idea to practice on a scrap piece of timber first.
  • Ensure a guide template is fitted to the base plate of your trimmer.
  • When setting up for the hinge leaf width, allow margin for guide template (generally around 2mm)
  • A 6mm bit will give best results as it leaves a very small radius in the corners of the rebate thus allowing hinges to be “bruised” into position, eliminating the use of a chisel.
