Use this extra-long router bit to rout out the deep mortises that accept the lid stays on quadrant hinges.

Rockler Extra-Long Quadrant Hinge Router Bit

Rating:
100% of 100

Installing quadrant hinges requires that you not only rout out the mortise for the hinge plate itself, but also a deeper mortise that accepts the lid stay. This router bit provides the extra length needed to reach the bottom of the mortise. This means there is no drilling or chiseling required, resulting in a faster, more precise installation.


NOTE: Multiple passes should be used to rout out the mortise.

Quadra hing with one bit
First use was on two humidors and the using the extra length bit permitted all the mortise and deep cuts to be done with one bit on a compact router. Saved time without swapping out bits. Used the Jig-it system with the large quadrant hing template. Beats using a small chisel the clean up drilled holes.

Worked as expected. Must make multiple passes to go deep, of course.

For quadrant hinge instillation.

I bought a jig it and wasn't told at the time that I needed it. Your postage is outrageous, first class would be half price and get here quicker.

Hoping it would be faster and easier than a Forstner bit and chisel and leave a cleaning cavity for the quadra hinge.
