Overview

A simple Jig-It® precisely dimensioned to rout the "mouse hole" into the top rail of your hand-made shutters. The mouse hole is a small open-ended mortise that the shutter control arm swings into when the louvers are closed. Simple to use with a standard 1-3/8" template guide, just clamp and rout. The sturdy transparent jig makes it easy to line up with your pencil marks.

Technical Details:

  • The Mouse Hole Jit-It routs a pocket either 3/8" W or 5/8" W; the required dimension is provided with the Shutter Design Wizard Custom Shutter Plans on Rockler.com.
  • Designed to be used with a 3/8" or 5/8" straight bit, depending on the desired mouse hole size, and a 5/8" template guide (30933).
  • The 3/8" mouse hole is for the 1-1/4" louvered movable shutters and the 5/8" mouse hole is for the 2-1/2" and 3-1/2" movable shutters.
  • Be sure to rout the mouse hole before assembling your shutters. This way, your shutter rails will never be too short for the Jig-It®.

Arrived damaged

Jeff Posted April 10, 2014
The jig arrived cracked, and by the time I discovered the crack, (broke all the way through as soon as I removed it from the package), I was in no mood to fight with getting a replacement. Built my own from 1/4 inch plywood, and it worked fine.
