Great tool, happy I bought it.
I was a little hesitant to order this jig but pulled the trigger anyway. The jig and case are well made and worked perfectly. Just know going in that this jig comes ready to do 1/4” radius or square corner hinges so if you have 5/8 radius you will need to order the correct bit and collar. I have a Festool OF1400 router and the porter cable collar works with that router using the collar adapter that came with the router. One small issue is that the studs that hold the adjustable plates on the jig do stick up high enough that the router base will touch them and stops you from routing before the mortise is complete, but the Festool router does have a flat side on the base so I was able to rotate the router and finish the cut before the stud touched the base and the next time I use it I will have a file handy to simply take around 1/16 or so off the studs to fix this problem.

This tool works awesome for cutting in and mortising hinges on doors once you have it set up which does take a few minutes you can whip out a lot of doors and jams very quickly

It had everything I needed down to the corner chissel, router bit and sleeve. It was acurate and of professional quality. Love the carrying case that goes with it.

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

great time saver
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
