Answer: 
It is set up and accurate for 1-3/8 and 1-3/4. You should be able to make a very simple jig or adjustment and use it on a 1-1/2 inch door.

Used mine with a trim router and it worked great. My opinion would be that a full size would be overkill.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great device, but mislabled The device works verywell but the directions are wrong. The front and back of the template and directions are reversed. I contacted the manufacturer who agreed they were wrong. As long as you are aware of this, you will find that it works very well. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good useful tool. Could have better directions. A storage container is needed. Good tool for occasional use. Could use better direction. Needs a storage containers for all the pieces. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product and easy to use Easy to use for all hinge mortises and strike plate, etc. Would be much better if you did not have to screw the template into the door and jamb. The screw holes then have to be filled. The screws are cheapies and are worthless after 4 doors. Ryobi has a hinge mortise that clamps on without the use of screws. Measuring accuracy is the most important thing. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for price Recommend with qualifications as work around required for jamb if 4" hinge parts fit poorly. May 31, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Okay product for simple jobs that is much better for new installation than for modifying existing jamb/door. While it is true that there is a steel frame assembly, all of the inserts are plastic. The design of the unit is such that you have to nail it in place (as opposed to clamping it on) and so that can throw off the accuracy if you aren’t careful as it makes fine adjustments difficult. For the price it isn’t too bad, but really it can’t be used easily to mortise an existing jamb and is really only good for new installation as it has to sit flat on the jamb when routing the strike plate. I like the more expensive Milescraft Model # 12930203 much more as it is all steel and clamps on, but it is only good for interior doors. If they made one that worked on both I would definitely buy that one. February 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product wrong instructions To start with I believe the product itself is made well and delivers with exact mortises. However BEWARE of the instructions as to what they call the door front. The metal jig for holding the different mortise guides has one side toward the front of the door. If you always orientate the jig as instructed you will have a mortise cut that will have the pin side of the hinge on the front side of the door. You actually want the pin side of the hinge to be on the back side of door. When you walk into a room or bldg. the door will open away from you toward the inside with the hinge pin on the back not the front. Very rarely does a door open toward you except maybe for a hall closet door. You have been warned. November 19, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Design but usable. I have used five different methods to cut hinge mortises. In order from worst to best they are: Router by hand, chisel by hand, this product, Porter Cable hinge mortise jig and shop built jig. There are four problems with this product. 1. Centering is not precise - this is critical when cutting hinge mortises, since the door and jamb mortises must line up. 2.Router depth setting is more difficult. 3. Two number six screw holes are left in the work and must be filled. 4. The clumsy cam mechanism doesn't allow cutting mortises in existing cased door jambs. I managed to find work-arounds for all of these but would not buy this product again. The Porter Cable is far superior although you will have to buy a separate jig for strike plate mortises. If you have the time and the skill, I highly recommend a shop-built jig. A final note: Some reviews I've read complain that the template may be damaged if you let the cutting edge of the router bit make contact with the template. This can occur with any jig, and is a matter of skill and care rather than design or manufacture. December 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does door jambs also This is the only jig I found that would do existing door jambs as well as the door. You have to remove the knobs and measure carefully but it does work. I converted sliding doors into french doors for a closet and was able to mortise all hinges. December 22, 2015
