474351 Veritas Hinge-Boring Jig £169.87

Drilling 35mm holes for cabinet hinges is usually done on a specially jigged drill press in a small shop, or on a very expensive machine in a large workshop. This hand-held boring jig out-performs both in its speed and its versatility. The precision-cast aluminium alloy frame incorporates a depth-adjustable carbide-tipped bit with outlining spurs for clean holes in solid wood, veneers, or melamine-covered material. The micrometer fence screws let you dial any backset up to 12mm, and an integral rule makes it easy to set the depth of cut up to 16mm; both dimensions cover all 35mm cup hinges available. In addition, a set of spacers, which let you drill for flap hinges (with breakout up to 10mm), is included. The 1/4" hex drive lets you use a quick-change chuck or a hex-head socket powered by an electric drill. The stop rod is usable left or right handed. The base plate is countersunk for most common cup-hinge screw holes; these can be drilled quickly using the same fence and rod stop settings as used for the cup holes. The base plate also contains a pair of countersinks spaced 32mm apart for drilling hinge mounting-plate holes on the inside of cabinets.
