Hi,

I've tried multiple, but one thing is to remember... The pilot holes for the screws are not often where the jig places them. You need to check with the hinge where to drill the pilot holes.

Other than that - all concealed hinges I believe would work fine... 

I have used Blum and love them. I do not buy any other hinge/slide/etc. the jig align the screws for the cup side only not the clip. The jig does not help with the clip part

Helo Michael,

When you decide on the hinges make sure you get a complete set and check the distance from the cup to the edge as there are variations in the spacing requirements as the styles change and manufacturers vary.

I would suggest you make a test sample so the final fitup is what you expected.

When you go shopping make sure you get the soft close versions.

The comment Edward made regarding pilot holes refelects my notes as well.

The comment Laura made reminded me that you can view all the details on Blum hinges on their site as PDF files.

Good luck with your project.

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.
