The Trend Lock Jig offers a level of precision and finish that is difficult to achieve when cutting lock and latch mortises by hand.
The Lock Jig can be used with any router fitted with a 30mm guide bush and a 12mm diameter long reach cutter. Ideally a 12.7mm (1/2 inch) collet router should be used to take advantage of the extra length available by using a 1/2 inch or 12mm shank diameter cutter Trend TR37. This will produce a mortise depth of up to 70mm, suitable for most shallow bodied locks and latches.
For deeper mortises and when using a smaller collet capacity (1/4 inch or 8mm shank cutters), the depth can be increased using an auger or flat bit.
Two sets of steel templates are provided with the jig, a lettered set (A to D) for the lock body mortise and a numbered set (1 to 12) for the lock faceplate. When routing the template is securely held to the face of the jig by two strong magnets. A chart is supplied with the jig for correct selection of templates for all popular locks.
