Description

The Concealed Hinge Jig takes the guesswork out of installing cabinet doors using concealed hinges. This economical, easy-to-use jig ensures accurate hinge alignment, so you can install doors that fit great and work well. Plus, the Concealed Hinge Jig works with an ordinary drill and the included carbide tipped bit.

The Concealed Hinge Jig allows you to drill cup holes for concealed cabinet door hinges (sometimes called “Euro hinges”) using just a drill. The jig positions an included carbide-tipped bit exactly at the proper position and offset, and drills to the perfect depth every time thanks to a depth stop collar. The jig is simple to use, and it ensures that you can mount cabinet doors that fit great and work properly.

Concealed hinges are great for mounting cabinet doors because they stay out of sight, they’re adjustable, and they work very well. Mounting them, though, requires drilling a large hole at a very specific position and depth. The Kreg Concealed Hinge Jig takes the guesswork out of drilling those holes, and allows you to do it with nothing more than a drill and the carbide-tipped bit that comes with the jig. 

Note: A 1/16" bit is required to drill for hinge-mounting screws. Not included.

The Concealed Hinge Jig consists of a glass-filled nylon base with a hole that receives a drill guide. Indexing cams ensure that the jig positions the bit to drill a hole at the required offset—which is dictated by each hinge—and a built-in stop collar ensures that the cup depth is correct every time. There are even holes that you can use to guide a bit for hinge screw holes. The Concealed Hinge Jig comes with a high-quality, carbide tipped bit to ensure great results.

The Concealed Hinge Jig is designed to be intuitive for beginners to use, but robust enough for professionals. Just pick out your hinges, look up a few basic mounting instructions that come with them, and then set up the Concealed Hinge Jig by adjusting a pair of built-in cams. After that, you’re set to drill hinge cup holes using any ordinary drill. Whether you’re installing one cabinet door or making doors for an entire kitchen, the Concealed Hinge Jig provides reliable, consistent results.

Drilling Depth

The jig drills slightly over 1/2" deep when adjusted as described in the instructions. This depth places the tip of the bit very close to the opposite surface when drilling 5/8 material. To prevent breakout you need to tightly clamp backing to the opposite side and shim the bit to reduce the drilling depth. I added a washer on the bit between the stop and the jig to reduce the drilling depth. With the modification and backing, the jig worked quite well.The jig should include more adjustment for the drilling depth.

First Time worked like a charm!!!

This is the easiest jig I've ever used. Can't go wrong with this jig. I would recommend this to anyone. It works just like it's demonstrated in the videos. I was apprehensive when I first tried the jig, and did it on the piece of scrap, but it worked like a charm cutting the hole and then I placed the pilot holes for the screws.

Just Purchased

Well, I just had the opportunity to use this new jig. I had never installed concealed hinges prior to this, and after a few test holes, getting it all dialed in (super simple by the way), I was off and running making perfect holes in my new doors. I wish the instructions from the hinge manufacturer had been this clear and simple. There is only one thing that would take this tool from good to great; the pilot hole guides would be GREAT if there was a metal bushing (like the pocket hole kit) on the inside of the hole guide; as I see it, these are going to wear out VERY quickly. Another great product from Kreg. Keep up the good work.

Great jig at a fair price

I'll preface this review by saying that I had been shopping for a concealed hinge jig for a while and had primarily been considering what Rockler offers, but, their Jig It products for this application start at $69. So, when Kreg introduced this jig, I had to give it a shot due to the cost. Having just used this on an entire kitchen's worth of cabinet doors, I can comfortably say that this jig is a good buy overall. Sure, you have to move clamps and switch bits for every hinge that you bore, but, that's alright once you get into a rhythm. My only complaint about the product is that the accuracy of the 1/16" pilot holes for the hinge screw connection is just so-so. You end up having to hold the hinge down when you install it to make sure it doesn't end up crooked. A minor inconvenience. Also, I'm not 100% enthusiastic about the all plastic construction and how long it'll last, but, so far so good. One tip: if you're lucky enough to have two drills, it will save you from having to switch between the forstner bit and the 1/16" bit.
