TOP 7 DIY WOODWORKING TOOLS PART 6
1. Anthony’s Hinge Jig - http://www.anthonytools.com/contact.html
Often when you install hinge hardware to Euro Style cabinets you struggle to locate the centerline for a hinge. With this jig it is easy. You mount it into the 5mm holes and draw the centerline by using its cursor. Even when the cabinet doesn’t have 5mm holes, the jig will assist you to work accurately. Just align pins along the edge of the cabinet and drill 5mm holes through the jig’s drill guide. Then you mount the jig in the new holes and find the centerline.
