Mouse Hole Jig-It® for Movable Louvered Shutters
Mouse Hole Jig-It® for Movable Louvered Shutters
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.

Features:

  • 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, sold separately)
  • 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®.

wrong material
If the router bit touches this soft plastic it is ruined right away. This needs to be made out of aluminum or metal because it too easily loses its shape and then will no longer produce accurate mouse holes.

Pieces were broken
My jig arrive well packaged but in 4 pieces instead of two. Both pieces were broken into 2 pieces. Rockler needs to use material stronger than the plastic they currently use. Some sort of metal would be nice. The idea of the jig is a good one. The material used to make it is inferior.
