Pretty Accurate By Buzzsaw
First the jig itself works fine. The mortising bit is JUNK. Poorly designed and it burns up in about one maybe two mortises. Order the Freud 16-560 Mortising bit. Difference is night and day. The Freud bit works fantastic and lasts a very long time. I am a professional builder so I know quality from junk.

Very impressed with the template, the only thing, I use dry-wall screws instead of the nails provided. I like the router bit with bearing included, but was able to use my Craftsman router with the bit/guide and the strike plates fit perfectly.
Works as advertised. By Kenneth Kirkland
I’m a pro subcontractor, and use this 2 to 10 times weekly mortising new blank doors on remodeling projects. It works well. Whoever is having problems with these must be being too rough on them, as to date I’ve already done over 40 doors and jambs with this template. and yes it will do the jambs even with a stop installed. you just can’t always hit it up to the jamb and it be correct. sometimes you have to freehand set the template.
All I know is it beats a chisel and does in 3 minutes what used to take 4 or 5 minutes, especially 5/8” round hinges. and it looks like it was factory cut. I use this set with my Porter Cable #450 Router. Perfect Combination!

Prepare jambs and slab
Measure the existing frame (not the stop) from floor to head and from side to side in several places to verify the slab will fit. The frame should be 3/16” wider than the slab (1/16” clearance on the hinge jamb and 1/8” clearance on the strike jamb) and tall enough (usually 1/4” - 1/2” taller) to allow 1/8” clearance on the head jamb and allow the slab to operate without rubbing on any flooring.
frame 3/16" wider than slab. 1/16" on hinge jamb. 1/8" on strike jamb. frame 1/4" to 1/2" taller than slab. 1/8" clearance on head jamb. No rubbing on the floor.
