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
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.
