Foolproof Hinge Mortises

Foolproof Hinge Mortises

All it takes to rout perfect-fitting hinge mortises is the jig shown on page 8 of ShopNotes No. 94 and a dado cleanout bit. The one used with the jig is a ½″-dia. bit with a ¼″ shank. The Amana number for this bit is 45460-S and it's available from the Woodsmith Store (below).
