    Quality Template

    Posted by Drew on Nov 27th 2021

    This is a very nice template that will last for any of the quadrant hinge routing I need to do for box work. It does commit you to using Brusso's quadrant hinge, but i realized this when going this route. I did have to modify a bushing to fit this template and to took some sanding to get it to glide smoothly with no slop in the template. Once dialed in, things worked flawlessly.

    The template needs a second fence, at right angles to the one it comes with, to allow for clamping.

    I bought this jig so I could install the HD-638 quadrant hinges with precision on a humidor I’m making out of high end exotic hardwoods. I was going to use a shop made jig, but I didn’t want to screw this up, considering the amount of money that I have invested in the wood, and the time I have invested in the build. The jig is very well made and should produce a flawless fit for the hinges. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out as planned. I blame most of it on my skill, however, the directions are lacking details. If there was a detailed video, explaining the process, I think I would have had better luck. Now that I spent the money on the jig, I’m stuck buying the HD-638 hinges ($50+) that the jig is made for. I hope my next try with this jig turns out better. I will be building a new humidor, as I can’t give a humidor as a gift that has a sloppy hinge install.

    Accurate & Flawless

    Excellent accuracy combined with intuitive instructions (available online) made fitting the quadrant hinges themselves a breeze.

    the instructions need to be more detailed but I figured it out. try a few practice cuts on scrape lumber before your good project.
