Rob Cosman's Wood-Hinge Individual Jigs: 6mm
Master craftsman Dale Nish taught me how to make an amazing wood hinge for boxes. A wooden dowel is cut into segments, a shallow hole is drilled in the center of each dowel and a small pin is inserted into the hole for the dowel segments to pivot on. I've made thousands of boxes using this style of hinge and I have designed four jigs to precisely drill the hole in the center of dowel segments (the most difficult task).
Each individual wood-hinge drill jig includes one dowel jig, drill bit holder, drill bit, and Allen wrench.
6mm & 8mm drill jigs come with a 1/16" drill bit.
10mm & 12mm drill jigs come with a 1/8" drill bit.
Opposing set screws hold the drill bit securely in the holder and allows for adjustment of the hole depth.
Port holes in drill bit holder expel the sawdust to prevent clogging.
