Drawer jig it
Posted November 20, 2013
I have it and it works good. I have used it for drawers and doors. Kind of pricey for what it is intended for. The center punch is a nice addition. Need a bigger one for taller drawers though.

I put in cabinets for a major box store and putting the pulls on drawers was one of the hardest parts of installation. I ordered this hoping it would help me but it turned out to be useless. It took only one set of cabinets to see it did not work for me. I had to readjust every time the draw size changed and the wood stop was too short to hold it steady. I tried to return it but it had to be in the same box it came in to return it and by the time I had used the guide, the box had gotten thrown out. The guide now sit with all the other useless tool I have bought over the years.

I haven't used the jig yet, but I expect it will help me install my drawer pulls and it is easier than trying to make my own jig. I was disappointed to find that there are no instructions in the box he other disappointment is the stop block which does not mate at a firm 90 degree angle with the t-bar. This is a problem because the block could move and throw off the jig. I am going to either make a new block that fits properly or redrill the screw hole to elongate it so I can slide the block up to the bar for a tight fit. The other issue I see is that the drill plate does not have any indexing lines to help you line it up straight to the t-bar. It is good to be able to read the other reviews so I can anticipate any issues with using this jig. I paid a lot of money for my cabinet doors and drawer fronts and I don't want to mess them up. All-in-all the jig quality looks good, but needs work on a few of the other details for this to be a great product.Editor's note: The package photos and illustrations are intended as the basic instructions for these. A step by step approach would be: 1. Determine position of handle to be installed. 2. Mark center line. 3. Choose JIG IT boring width needed. 4. Position JIG IT for correct spacing and lock guide on T-Track. 5. Align JIG IT over center line. 6. Mark locations with a punch. 7. Remove JIG IT and drill. The stop-block is used for repetitive drawer pull attachments. The tape measure can be applied to the top edge of the aluminum t-track to use as a reference when positioning the jig.

This jig only receives a "very good" rating from me. What an excellent idea! It proved to be very useful in my kitchen cabinet installation. I only have two complaints and one additional suggestion:1. The template needs to be deeper. Many kitchen cabinets have drawer fronts that are 10-12" tall. This jig only allows you to center on a 6-8" tall drawer front. I will have to make my own jig to complete four 10" deep drawers.2. The clearances between the stop block and the t-track need to be improved. The stop block should slide on the t-track so that it remains square at all times. The current design allows it to slip and go out of square. This is a major design flaw if you don't watch for that to happen during use.3. It would be nice if you would offer the kit with additional lengths of t-track. I would suggest 12", 24", and 36". This allows for applications on the most common cabinet widths.Fix these three issues and you will have one awesome jig that could be used for many tasks outside of just adding drawer pulls and cabinet knobs.I found that it makes a great layout template for transferring hinge pilot holes from one drawer front or cabinet door to another. We had a couple drawers that were damaged during shipment and needed replacing. The replacement drawers from the factory were not pre-drilled for hinges etc. This jig made that task very simple!
