I have no prior hinge-experience, so all advice is very welcome.
I'll see tomorrow what the bigger bits cost here. Unfortunately this sort of things are likely to be more expensive here (Finland) than in the US. Also any free shipping campaigns usually only apply in US/Canada, for understandable reasons. But, I will see tomorrow when I'll get to the hardware store.
Oho ! A Finn and an Estonian in the same week ! Things are getting interesting.
My bit set doesn't have anything that big, well, not straight bits anyway. But I might as well check tomorrow when I go shopping, my bits could use a little updating
In the meantime I figured, that it's not that important to have a recess of exactly 35mm - the hinge (Blum) will fit in slightly smaller recess and the thing is not even round, so I was probably being overly accurate. I went ahead with the 44mm hole saw for my DIY-jig-proto and it seems to work. For the actual jig I need to get some thinner plywood or even plexi-glass.
That is, if I don't find a 1 3/8" bit tomorrow from the hardware store
