I am looking to learn how to use a Carey hinge template (#300-2). I bought mine at an estate sale and there were no instructions. While surfing the internet I've noticed that Bosch and Porter Cable also make templates/jigs for mortising butts, although I have no idea about similarities in/of design nor set up/use. Ideally, you might be able to refer me to an instructional video of some sort (?), as a picture is worth a thousand words. O.K. then, this is where I say thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you, maybe.

Carey went out of business, and Lee Valley now makes and sells their templates. Lee Valley has instructions on their web site here.

Like Lex said, Carey went out of business and Lee Valley took over. I couldn't match the number you have but see if this helps
