I don't think so. Unless you can make a special template to match with it. Lastly, are you sure you can get a router bit like what they recommend.

I don't knowhow I would have hung 12 doors without the template
I don't know how I would have hung 12 interior doors if I didn't have the template. It is very sturdy and easy to use.

Good Product
This is an easy product to use IF you read the instructions. LOL I used an older version for 15 years. I like the the setting pegs on this newest version. You don't have to eyeball the door thickness anymore.

Install a hinge on a new door and its door frame. Will you need a template to help you make a hinge space in correct size and nicely. Hinge Template is one of the tool to help you out of this problem other than you use a chisel to make hinge space unless you're a pro-wood worker. For me after detaily study how to use of it and repeat how to set up this tool getting more familiar with its. Take a little time to study and practice before you going to use it I kindly recommend of it. After used to it, now you can make a nice hinge space like a PRO. As good as its description.
