Fitting Hinges

Fitting Hinges
  The Guide plate extends to allow it to work over an edge to strike a line across a face, perfect for setting a recess depth for hinges.

Fitting new hinges to a door requires an accurate depth to be marked to ensure the door still swings correctly without binding.

Extend the Guide Plate by around 25 - 30mm beyond the pencil lead and adjust the thumb wheel until it is set to the thickness of the leaf.

Fitting Hinges
  Place the Guide Plate on the edge of the door. (keeping pressure on the back edge gives full support on the door and prevents it from dropping into the old hinge recess if you are replacing old hinges).
Fitting Hinges
  Move the EasyScribe along to allow the lead to mark the new hinge depth and repeat the process for the other hinge or hinges.
Fitting Hinges
  If you are fitting a new door the hinges are marked on the frame or lining and the edge marked in the same way using the EasyScribe with the Guide Plate extended to support it on the door lining while marking the edge.
