Everything works great except this kit is made for a large router not a trim router. The bushing kit has to have a larger base. Also they need to include an add in for 5/8" radius hinges. This only does 1/4" radius which leaves a gap on 5/8" radius hinges. It would also be nice if they added a template for strikes to make it a complete kit
Purchased on Monday, Wednesday went to check status, found an email “order canceled” . No message, no phone call no attempt to solve problem. Ordered on Amazon on Wed, at my door Friday. Hard to support other businesses if they can’t perform.
Template isn’t compatible with my other two routers, having issues . My templeco jigs are better
I purchased this product because I have to install about 12 doors. I could have chiseled them but it would have taken a long time. I bought this because I saw it on This Old House and figured it would help. I must say this kit helped me a lot. I had to read the directions many times to be sure I was doing it right. I practiced on a 2 x 4 and it worked. I have a Porter Cable router so the template guide fit perfect I am not sure how it will work on other routers, the kit comes with a bit and template guide for 1/4" radius hinges but will have to buy the bits and guides for 5/16" and 5/8" radius hinges. Will also have to buy the jamb gauges if you want to rout doors to fit pre-routed wood or metal jambs or to provide clearance for weather stripping
I HAD A JOB TO INSTALL 10 INTERIOR DOOR SLABS. BY HAVING THIS TOOL,MADE MY JOB A WHOLE EASIER AND FASTIER.THE HOME OWNERS WERE IMPRESS WITH TOOL, HOW IT WAS DESIGN. THIS TOOL IS ONE OF THE BEST INVESTMENT I HAVE.
