This is another quality product from our friends at Incra. It is recommended to have an Incra jig like the original sold here or the LS Positioner.
The main purpose is to drill holes in the hinges after they are made. It works well for that but it needs a few other things to make it work. Bullnose router bits are a must and it is also recommended to have the Master Reference Guide.
If you have the Bullnose bits and the Hinge Crafter you could use your table saw to cut the box joints required for the hinges. The size of the box joints correspond to the size of the hinge. That is the 3/8" hinge requires a 3/8" box joint. The sizes of joints are 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", and 3/4". It comes with a long 1/8" drill bit and it recommends 1/8" brass rods to make the hinge pins.
Whether you use the Incra Jig or just cut box joints on your table saw, the Hinge Crafter works great to drill holes in the centers of the hinges.
