Default Hinge Mate II

I recently received this new little "toy". I gave it a try early this am. It's not too shabby. I will say this though, if you intend on doing a lot of hinge work, it's well worth the price tag. If however, you're only going to do a few hinges here an there, well... it might be best if you stuck doing it the "old school" way as I was taught. As with anything, it will take some practice and patience.

I give it 2 thumbs up.


Forgot to add, for those of us who make our own hinges, (see wooden hinges thread), a little extra planning is involved.

Looks like a nice jig. But as noted previously... if you make a lot of small boxes, one would be very handy. If not, most likely another router would be a better purchase.
