02 Oct Cabinet Hardware Installation Kit
Kreg Tools has introduced a package that includes everything a woodworker needs to install drawer slides, concealed hinges and pulls in a uniform manner. The Hardware Installation Kit (item KHI-PROMO-20) delivers accurate repeatability, and only requires a drill. It actually contains three jigs, one for drawer slides, one for concealed cabinet hinges, and one for knobs and pulls. There are also a pair of clamps that hold the jigs in place while you work. The knobs and pulls jig has moveable, hardened-steel drill guides that lock in place to align with common hole spacing measurements. A moveable edge guide and built-in scales in imperial and metric units make sure the holes are positioned correctly without having to measure and mark every time. The concealed hinge jig places cup holes for hinges and drills them using an included carbide-tipped bit exactly at the proper position and offset. It drills to the perfect depth every time, thanks to a depth stop collar. And the drawer slide jig helps align slides in the cabinet and on the drawer.
