Reviews for "Cabinet Hardware Jig"


Positioning Issues

This fixture works very good on wider wood stock but not so well when using on 1 X 2 or narrower wood. The design of the positioning fence will not allow for centering the hardware at 3/4" from the edge or less depending on the width of the wood without putting a spacer on the face of the fence. This works only OK but, is a pain to keep the spacers in place while clamping and drilling. It would be nice if the fence were redesigned or a secondary fence was available for use on narrow wood stock.

It's the customer service which makes me come back

I just called customer service because one of the grey guides came apart during an install. I have had the product for about a month and just installed my 28th pull. I didn't expect the product to malfunction. Now.. it's a great product and does what it says. So 100% worth it. Just wish guides were better built. So I didn't hesitate to pick up the phone and call customer service. I believe I spoke to Bill (didn't wait at all) . Nice guy.. I explained what happened. He said he apologized the product failed and without question sent me 2 replacements. That is great customer service. I am less upset the product failed and more likely to purchase product from Kreg simply because I know if I have an issue, there is no question it will get resolved. Site note... Make an 8 inch version of this! Regards, S

Great Tool........but

The machine bolts on my cabinet hardware are 8-32 and they fit in the 5/32 hole in my drill guide. When the 5/32 holes are drilled the screws fit properly, snug, not too tight and not too loose. Using the 3/16 guide makes the drill sloppy in the guide holes and I have to be careful when drilling it, because my cabinet drawers are inset where the handles mount and the gap between the jig and cabinet face makes accuracy even more difficult. I'm not keen on drilling oversized 3/16 holes in the cabinets, that would create issues later down the road with hardware moving around if the screws become loose. Also I really want the holes drilled exact so when I look down a drawer cabinet all the handles line up exactly plum and straight. Can you guys make smaller guides to fit the 5/32 drill bits ? I would like a more exact product Thank You Mr G

Great start

I love it, installed all the pulls in my kitchen in a snap! The only thing I would say is it would be nice to have an extension for large drawers. Mine are shaker panels and about 13" so trying to clamp the jig inside the shakers was a bit of a trick. Would be awesome to have a few slides to make it easier. Just my $0.02.

WOW

I just used my new Cabinet Hardware Jig to apply drawer pulls to my newly build cabinets. GREAT PRODUCT. This is the perfect jig to add to any DIY/Professional's tool box.

Kitchen Makeover

I received this jig for Christmas and have been practicing with it over the holidays. I've re-doing the kitchen, which entails sanding and painting the old varnished cabinets. I had the lower half of the cabinets done and started working on the upper half yesterday. After sanding down several doors, I whipped out my hardware jig and within several minutes of measuring and setting it up, I drilled eight holes for my new handles in less than two minutes. They were all perfectly centered, all equidistant on each door, and they look fantastic. Remembering how I did the lower cabinets by measuring each handle location (sometimes twice) on each door or drawer with my ruler, making sure they were level and equidistant on each door, that was all very time consuming. They turned out nice, but what a time killer. Now I don't have to worry about that at all. {Smile}

Don't go with out

I have been using the Rockler version for years. I had to alter it for larger MM sizes. This tool is worth the price even if you only use it for one job.
