Works as advertised
I could not install quadrant hinges without this jig. The quadrant hinges look great in a jewelry box.

Must have tool
You have to use this template when using the Jig It system. In the past I made my own templates for mortising but never again! I highly recommend buying this along with the Jig It Mortising system for serious woodworkers.

Incredible Accuracy
The last step for an intricate jewelry box is installing quadrant hinges and without this jig that becomes a highly stressful ordeal. The Jig-It takes the worry away and delivers beautiful results. Good idea to buy some bench cookies to make the set up even easier.

I've been using the small quadrant hinge mortise template and jig for several months now. Now I need a template for the large quadrant hinge to use in the same jig...

Because of the complexity of quadrant hinge I'm in need of a template. Unfortunately but requires a special insert for each and every hinge used.

I purchased the Jig IT Hinge Mortising System (#58822) and the Q3 Large Quadrant Hinge Mortise Template (#51331) to go with it. I also purchased the Solid Brass Large-Box Quadrant Hinge set (#24300.) I am using a 3/16" straight router bit (#90000) and the 3/8" O.D. guide bushing (#43877) along with the locking nut (#63107) in my plunge router. I routed a text board as the instructions recommended but the routed slot for the hinge is too narrow. What am I missing?
David J on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Double checking, all of the part numbers you gave are a correct match, and they should work together successfully. The only thing that I can think of is that when you cut the slot, you may need to do a complete circuit of the opening in the template to make an initial cut then widen it just a little bit with the pass up the other side of the template opening (it's hard to know the fit without being there.). You didn't mention how much too narrow the slot is. I do know that it's a pretty snug fit, so any variation in hinge width or guide bushing size, or angle of router (must be 90 deg.) would introduce a little variation in the slot size, though it would be a small one. Hope this helps, but it's hard to diagnose without being there.
I have built a shadow box to hang on the wall, 16 by 19 inches. I'll be putting glass in the door, which needs to be hinged. The wood is 3/4 inch thick. I'm wondering if the quadrant hinges work for this project? It looks like they are usually used on boxes that sit flat on a table, not one that hang on the wall. Also, if quadrant hinges work, should I use large or small? Looks like large is best?.. thanks.. Tom

BEST ANSWER: I think it would on hanging box.make sure template is anchored securly use a small size pluge router
