Customer Questions & Answers

Is there atemplate for 5/8" radius cornered hinges

Asked by: Mike
Yes. For instance, for 3 1/2 inch hinges, one side of the template does 5/8" radius corners, while the other side is used for 1/4" radius corners and square corners (a corner chisel was included with my kit).

The instructions are confusing and ended up being useless and could not be followed. Need to have knowledge of how to set up and use a router and other basic tools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Replaced door jambs on 2 french doors, so had to make mortises for 12 hinges. Tool paid for itself

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value A little chinsey on the adjustment knobs, but a good value overall. used it on 7 doors without a problem, and put it away in case I need it again. the router bit worked well too. I used the nails it came with once and tossed them out, found some small screws instead. practice on a scrap piece to set the router bit height first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very easy to use, great quality at a great price. It even comes with a nice chart giving measurements for different sizes of doors. Also includes a nice router bit. The only improvement that can be made is to include some type of case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy if your installing unhinged doors as I was For installing unhinged doors it's the tool you need. Easy to use and the hinges came out perfect every time. I replaced 12 unhinged doors with the mortise kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milescraft door hinge mortising kit We are re-modeling our house and re-using the original door frames. Consequently we will be needing several new doors. I didn't want to take the time to tear out and re-install with complete door kits. Besides a door is about $8 cheaper than a whole kit. I would recommend that you do as the instructions say and practice on a scrap piece of wood to set the depth and make sure that you have the right template and that it is positioned correctly. This should be used by someone who is a bit familiar with woodworking though. Overall it is an excellent product and easy to use and will save you hours of chiseling and bad words. For the price, you would need to do several doors to justify the cost, (V.S. door kits) but it does come with the router bit which some competitors don't. Also would recommend the purchase of the latch routing kit if you are doing a bunch of doors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes it easy After hacking up too many mortises with a chisel, this really does the trick. My only complaint is that is sets too high off the door edge making eyeballing the new hinge location a little harder. But all in all, its a good tool.
