Measure twice, jig once
I didn't use the suggested centering drill bit and was still able to get 28 pairs of hinges mounted in the right place. Probably best to get the bit too as it's not expensive. The jig works great and held up to a few "misses" and drops. I could use it for 3 more projects.

Essential to have this Jig
I purchased two of these jigs. I had 28 doors to install -- that's 112 holes that had to be drilled to accommodate the lipped hinge brackets. On most existing cabinets, the screws are on the back side of the face frame, making this a blind drilling exercise. The Jig-It worked accurately. I extended the the line around the blue part of the jig so I could match that with the marks I made on the faceframe. Even with the adjustment ability of the euro-style hinges, it is imperative to get the brackets placed as accurately as possible. The JigIt did the job. As a word of caution, there is a learning curve to installing the 3/8" lipped door hinges, but after the first few, efficiency improved. I would recommend this device along with a self-centering drill like a VixBit.

Good, but could use one improvement
I used this template to install about 40 hinges, and it was indispensable. One improvement I made was to extend the centerline mark around the side of the blue handle, so you can see the mark from outside the cabinet when you clamp the template to the face frame and line it up with the mark on the frame.

Needs a better centerline mark.
Helps with hole alignment but centerline mark should wrap around entire template. It’s only visible from the top, which faces inside the cabinet, out of sight while using.

Did some hinges without this template. Difficult access to see where I’m drilling/screwing. Looks like this tool should simplify the process.
