Not the best solution for face frame cabinets
Posted December 10, 2013
The jig does hold the euro-slide precisely, however there is no access through the jig to drive a screw into the face frame. You need that access hole if your face-frame is not flush to the inside edge of the carcase. If you are using a spacer on the carcase to bring the slide flush with the face frame, then this jig will work well for you. I was not using the spacer. I used the Blum rear mount brackets instead. You have to mount the brackets to the slide first, then use the jig to position the slide. It is more cumbersome and not a time saver.

I was a cabinet installer for Sears. Too bad I didn't see this then. The tool helps you install glides vertically square to the face frame. You still need to adda 1" block +/- to keep horizontally square. I had to cut it down so I could use it for the bottom drawers. And drill two holes for screw-views and attaching. I finally cherry'd out our kitchen with rollouts and another drawer bank. This tool is worth the money!

I ordered this jig for installing Blum slides in lower kitchen cabinets with face frames. I found it not at all useful for this purpose! I can see how the jig can work with euro-style cabinets, but use with face frame cabinets results in inexact placement of the slides.

I used this jig with the blum sides. It was a big time saver and the drawers fit great.
