Re: Ryobi Hinge Template Kit


looks to me like you could set the template out 1/16th of an inch and then grind the edge of the hinge 1/16 the of an inch and pulll it in to close those gaps >

?????? im just a taper but plan on doing this as a diyer soon.

The PC is the only one I own and will use.
I have a set of hinge leaves for each size hinge to set the jig up on the jamb.
Pop those in the old mortise on the jamb tack the individual guides to the jamb set the spacer bars, remove and rout door. It is always dead nuts accurate never have a hinge slightly off so 2 go in and the third is off and has to be redone.

It did however cost more than $25.00

The nail holes have never been an issue.

Re: Ryobi Hinge Template Kit


For rounded edges I use a 1/2 spade bit in the two corners then cut the rest out with a chisel, if I don't buy square hinges.

I was thinking about buying a 1/2 round chisel but I might just give this Ryobi template a try.

I have used the Ryobi hinge template, very nice for a few doors. Unlike the pictures in the original post the hinges fit perfectly.

I think it's the collar on the router that is wrong. They have a thin wall and a thick wall collar. I know if I get them mixed up with my porter cable fixture vs. my templaco fixture I get strange results.

That Ryobi kit comes with a top bearing bit to follow the plastic jig, the kit is plastic and a bit sloppy...
