Has anybody used the Rockler Hinge Mortising jig ? Also, does anybody have one and some of the templates for sale ?
I’m going to make a couple humidors and that’s the (to me) the simplist way to get the hinges correctly mounted.

I hope somebody replies to you, my jewelry box hinge mortises always seem like a butcher job. I have studied, tried to learn and take my time but they always seem to be the worst part of the box.

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I actually quit doing hinges just because they are such a pain. However, This upcoming humidor is going to test my patience and I’m pretty sure there will be a second one. I’ve watched videos on youtube and the fixture from Rockler seems to be the answer but what about the learning curve, just how steep is it ?

sorry, Dick. Can’t help you there. I make my own mortising jigs to fit the current hinge.

cheers, Jim
