Hinge Recesssing

Hinge Recesssing
  Hinges can be recessed quickly and accurately with a light duty portable router fitted with a 1/2¨ diameter two flute cutter.
1. First construct a jig from MDF or plywood. Mark out the aperture according to the size of the hinge leaf. Allowance must be made for the offset between the outside of the guide bush and the cutter diameter. Providing the template material is square, use the router fitted with a sidefence to cut the aperture.
2. Mark accurately the required positions of the hinges on the door and the frame.
3. Clamp or pin the jig in turn for each recess and rout in a clockwise direction.
4. Remove the small radius in the corners with a corner chisel.
Keep the surface area of the jig to a maximum to support the base of the router.
Keep the support piece deep, for securing the clamps so that they will not interfere with the path of the router.

  5. When setting the router to cut the correct depth, the depth of cut can be pre-set using the hinge leaf itself.
A. Place the router on the edge of the door and plunge the cutter until it touches the surface.
B. Activate the plunge lock and release the depth stop.
C. Place the leaf between the turret stop and the depth stop and tighten the depth stop.
D. Withdraw the hinge leaf. The depth is now accurately set to recess the hinge leaf.
Hinge Recesssing
  This is a portable template jig designed for recessing hinges in wooden doors and frames. The apertures and edge stops are initially set and the template is then ready for accurate recessing of the frame and the door without adjusting the jig.
