    Hinge Wizard

    Greetings:

    Has anyone had any experience with the Hinge Wizard by Beall. I have attached a photo of it.

    Any router work will on this device.

    Thanks

    Ask me next week, I just purchased one based on a review that I read on www.woodshopdemos.com so it's John's fault if I'm not happy.

    The quality is excellent and it looks great. What templates are you thinking of getting / using?

    I am not sure of the templates. How about you?

    I'm using Blum hinges so I started with a 101 and a 102, but will probably add more.

    Hopefully I'll use it on Sunday.

    I also bought their router plate, it self centers and has the correct size collar. The most important part on the collar is that it can only be about 1/8 inch long.

    I'm sure there are cheaper ways to do it, I just didn't want the fuss.

    May I ask what king of router you intend to use?

    Thanks

    I will be using my Bosch Colt trim router. I believe smaller is better, but I wouldn't hesitate to use another.

    But if you have a trim router that's the way to go in my mind.

    You don't have to use a plunge router?

    Thanks

    I have it and it works great, pretty much makes the operation dummy proof.

    No, I think a plunge router would only complicate a simple operation.
