Remember to account for the thickness of the epoxy, primer and paint coats, other wise the hinges will end up being a bit proud of the surface.
Thanks. I gave the depth pin 1/2 a dial up after setting it to the hinge depth for the epoxy etc, it's a gamble but they should end up pretty flush.


There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

Nice job Jeff. The consistency is worth every moment of fiddling. I like the OG Makita too!

The next step is to save the jig “for next time” and put it on a shelf for 10 years. ( what happens in my garage)

Nice work. People can use this thread as a hinge mortising tutorial almost.

:lol:

The OG Makita is on modified duty, it's close to being a pensioner! Got it in '91 to install audio/video systems in SoCal tract homes in a very former life.

Appreciate that Dan! I did finally go back and fix the photo order.

This morning I over-drilled all the screw holes and started filling, I didn't dam some up well enough so there will need to be a Part II on that.
