Overview

Minimize setup time and eliminate hinge space variations from door to door with our innovative JIG IT® Multi-Tool Rail Master Pack. It lets you quickly and easily locate, center and drill two (or more) cup holes on cabinet doors for fully concealed European-style hinges – with a single setup! The Master Pack includes a 30" rail, two alignment plates, one bit guide and a stop block for positioning the jig on a door. Additional JIG IT® templates (sold separately) can be added for doors requiring three or more hinges. Mounting plate JIG IT® templates are also available for specific hinges and can be used on the 30" rail for matching the position of the hinge cups on the door.

This jig requires a special long-shank Forstner drill bit (sold separately) that is sized to fit the hinge cup.

As with all of the Rockler...

Carolyn M from Meridian, ID Posted April 21, 2013
As with all of the Rockler jigs I have purchased, this one does a great job. I would agree with some of the other reviews that a longer T slot is in order, Set up is quick and accuracy is much better than I could ever do by measuring, especially with the edge of the 35mm hole so close to the edge of the door. With the accompanying template for drilling the face frame, I managed to be able to set the upper and lower hinges at the exact same distance, making it unnecessary to readjust for left and right doors. I think the only annoying part of the jig is the clamps used to hold the jig to the door.  The holes come out better than if you were to use sharks withlaser beams attached to their heads. The most time consuming part of the entire drilling process is getting the cup hinges square and parallel with each other, which tells you how fast this jig is to set up and use. I would suggest having an adjustable square handy to ease adjustment when changing door sizes, and if you are planning on doing doors larger than 26" or so, that you order a separate T slot that is suitable for your application, but you can always just remove the stop, and adjust the location manually, but that defeats the point of the jig, though it would work if you only had a few large doors to do. The jig is equally cumbersome on very small doors, like you would find on a 12" tall bridge cabinet, but it only took me about 3 extra minutes to drill the four holes required on the two small doors. I think this is a very worthwhile tool to have even if you don't do hinge installation all that often, but then again, I am a tool monger!!!

I just received this item and have some comments on the instructions, assembly and initial quality. I will defer to the others on its use. Most seem to be pleased with this jig. I was disappointed to find that the handles were made of poplar vs. a more dense and durable wood. I also do not see why the manufacturer does not drill pilot holes for the toggle clamp. I drilled these holes using a 1/16" bit vs. the 1/8" bit recommended. I am glad that I did since, with a coating of beeswax, the screws went in easily. I think that the 1/8" holes would have been much too large to secure the toggle especially in poplar. Next the label on one of the bags indicated that the jog is pre-set for Blum 35mm face frame or frameless concealed hinges. I hope that the jig works with all hinge types. I assume that this is what the slots on the guide plate are for. Finally, I think that 1/4" washers should have been included to place over the end of the T-bolts beneath each knurled plastic knob. This is obviously not absolutely essential but I think that it would be better that way with the softer poplar under the knob. Otherwise the jig seems to be made of top quality components and I look forward to using it.

After studying this product for some time, I finally decide to buy it. The results using this jig are just exceptionally neat. You don't have to be an expert to produce high quality European hinges installation. The jig goes right the very first time. I recommend this product to anyone installing concealed hinges no matter if you are a pro or weekend woodworker.
