    This one is a little pricey but by far my favorite. If you really wanted to spend the money you can get 3 of them and a bar to connect them so the heights are perfect every time.

    I’ve used those porter cable template jigs for years . They work good just have to take your time setting it into the door or the latch template to frame for routing . The new style ones are better then the original style .

    Always willing to learn .

    my only question regarding the amazon kit. does it have the setup for a one shot setting to rout both the door and the jamb.

    many dont allow for doing both. some u simply set the jig on the door then transfer it to the jamb . we had a shop built jig 5 years ago which allowed for allow three hinges to be mortised then transfer it to the jamb. mostly i just free hand the door then transfer the marks to the jamb by setting the jamb on the edge of the door

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    The porter cable system is the one I see the most. we do not use one as most of our doors come machined. The times I have needed one, I have made my own out of a piece of 1/4 or 3/8″ plywood.
