Big Horn Corp. Offers An Inexpensive Way to Mark Cabinet Doors for 35mm Hinges

A new template and Forstner bit combination from Big Horn Corporation makes it a little easier to locate the recess for 35mm concealed hinges on cabinet door stiles. The kit (item 14840) is designed for the small shop and occasional cabinetmaker and will locate the center of the hinge cup and the two screw positions for most 35mm European style hinges. Simply hook the Hinge-Mate plastic template over the edge of the cabinet door, mark the three centers, and drill. The screw holes are located correctly for two of the most popular hinge patterns.
