Description

The Hinge Mate Morticing Jig, based on the very popular ProGrip clamping system, offers a secure and accurate method of routing out a variety of recesses, including those for butt hinges, locks, lock plates, stopped housings and mortices. The jig consists of two cam clamping arms, a cross bar and an adjustable stop and, once assembled, can be quickly set up to rout a wide range of recess sizes. Although bearing-guided trimming cutters can be used, we recommend the use of a suitable guide bush and straight cutter. Full instructions on setting the jig and on the choice of cutter and guide bush are included.

As mentioned by other users, this works fine on the door, but with a capacity of only 75mm it can't be used on the frame. You can't even lay it against the frame and improvise holding it there as the clamp heads get in the way. It's quite well made but not, I think, well suited for its advertised purpose.

If you're routing more than one door then it's undeniably useful. It's easy to set up - you need a Phillips screwdriver if you don't want to wreck the screws. The sticky-back gauges it comes with are fairly useless.
It's rigid and square, although the surface is not perfectly flush, as it should be.
You cannot use it on the door lining, so it's only useful for half the job.
The clamps are strong but they mark the work-piece.
If you have the means you're better off making yourself a hinge jig - this is OK but the only way it proves itself useful to me is when I have to route 3 or more doors.

An excellent hinge jig. Simple to set up and easy to use. Just mark the door out once it's set and away you go.

1/4" routers work best, I've used both the Bosch GKF 600 and Trend T5.

It is certainly not flimsy, and has always stayed square.

Ignore first review, this works just fine for routing for door hinges, what i bought it for. When clamped to the door it stays solid & square. The only problem with it is the capacity of the clamping jaws, it wont clamp on to a 95mm door plate which is a bit frustrating but i would still recomend.
