Make a jig out of 1/2" mdf with a cut-out in the centre the exact size of your fitting, using a short top bearing mortise cutter, set jig into position and rout out the centre to a depth sufficient to accomodate the fitment, clean out the corners and there you are.
Picture attached, shows cutter to use being the left hand one.
