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.

  • 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)
