Notes to users
Many of the hinges will have a slight variation in their manufactured dimensions we have made our Jig suit an average of these hinges, therefore the exact fit of the recess created when routed should allow for these small differences. From our development and research, we discovered that even hinges from the same packet differed.
You can make fine adjustments to the jig by simply using a block and sandpaper to remove a small amount from the side of the jig if you find your particular choice of the hinge is tight.
