A simple kit consisting of a 35mm short pattern sawtooth bit and a transparent plastic template with which to mark the positions of the holes for the hinge and the screw fixing holes. Designed more for occasional use, such as when replacing a few doors in an existing kitchen.

Thanks god I got thisIve had to fit 53 cupboard doors and home what with the kitchen, garage and work shop. Boy am I glad I got this kit. Yes i could have made a jig myself but this is so easy and simply to use and does the job so well, its paid for its self 100 times over. Nice to spend money on an item that has had some good usage.

Great Value Basic Jig KitI required a basic door hinge jig as I was adding some doors in the bedroom to some home made cabinets and this kit seemed to fit the bill. The plastic template was great to use, the only unfortunate downside is that the holes in the template for marking the hinge fixing screws were in the wrong place, however this is only a minor issue as I can ues the actual hinge to mark them out. So with the centre of the 35mm hole marked out and ready it was easy to drill the hole. The bit supplied is well made and cuts through the MDF doors quickly and cleanly to give a fantastic finish. Note though this kit does not mark out the position of the screw fixings on the cabinet side only the doors! Overall if you are only ever going to ues this jig once in a blue moon, then I can recommend it, if however you are going to be doing a lot of marking out then perhaps you should consider one of the more substantial kits avaliable.
