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).

Door Hinge Mortising Kit for Routers is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.

I was able to get a professional looking router for the hinge set, but there are issues with this design. Plastic pieces snuggly fit into the metal guild and when removing the default piece, it snapped in half, it didn't take much force, plastic guilds are paper thin. Lucky for me it was not the size I needed. From that point on I would "carefully" slid a screwdriver under the plastic piece and "gently" work around the edges to remove the mortise guild.

It works really good but you have to watch pulling your router out when done - I wasn’t paying attention and took a chunk out of the plastic guide - but not enough to ruin it - again it works great and the servic in getting it at bowling green ky Home Depot was great

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 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.
