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

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
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
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works well but slow Home owner and do other small projects for people. It does what it says and provides for good results if you use it carefully. It mounts to the door frame with two screws and that is a source of problems. Drilling the holes to mount the frame will determine your accuracy of the hinge position. This should have been designed as two steps, one mount the frame, two position along the door. Second stupid problem is they package the worlds cheapest mounting screws, these strip out after a very few uses and need to be replaced (You may not make it through one door). I replaced mine with hex head screws which are far better at standing up to constant use. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kit worked and is a great bargin The kit includes templates for most hinge sizes. It is easy to set up and make the appropriate mortises. This is a homeowners kit and it does that very well. June 9, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality, but great idea for a tool A bracket affixes to the door. The bracket has knobs that are adjustable for placement of the bracket on the door edge, depending on the door width. Features abut the door based on the knob positions. These features, unfortunately, were poorly assembled, and didn't support bracket properly (i.e., square) in relation to the door edge. This is unfortunate because there is no play in mating hinge plates. Additionally, I bought this product particularly for adjusting hinge plates in relation to existing jams. It does not fit on an existing jamb with trim installed. Who wants to remove the trim? It's not as pretty but it's easier to use a chisel. September 6, 2011
