The kit worked well. The ONLY thing I don't like is that I have to screw it to the door. This created more work to fill the hole. Not a big issue, but this could very easily be a clamp on device.

Once you get the concept,, it the best tool ever. Replaced 8 interior doors,,, first one took a while,, the other 7 absolutely greased lightning. Well worth the learning curve.

Works well. For the hinges, a router with a large base works best. For the strike plate, a small router is easier to handle.

I was amazed how quickly my order was processed, shipped and delivered. I work as I had hope and gave me a professional look when I was done.

Just purchased and used the hinge mate 350. The jig performed well but seems to me that something could be devised to clamp the jig to the door and frame rather than having to screw into the material....

Very handy mortise kit. Sometimes the inserts are reluctant to seat properly in the metal holder.

FAQs

What should I do if the stop on the jamb prevents the template frame from going over it?

If the stop on the door jamb exceeds the height of the template frame, you will want to create a shim or spacer to accommodate the additional height that you will need. Please be sure that the router bit will still properly ride along the inside of the hinge template after your spacer is in place.
