Topic tags/keywords: patron hinges router safety

David and I have been working on this and yesterday the solution occured to me : a piece of pine with a rabbit and a hole and pin on each end holds these small pieces securely. No more routed fingertips!

Dang- I have never given Grizz any credit! Sorry Grizz. Now I’ll have to start calling them Grizz/Patron hinges ( or how bout GP hinges for short?)

Andy,

Great design on your hinge jig. Just a thought, but what if the area of the rabbit under the hinge were made in the shape of your hinge? You could rough this on a band saw, drill the hole, put it in your jig, then you could use a straight cutting pattern bit to cut the roughed out shape to final form. Then use the above jig with a ball bearing bit to route the edges, flip the hinge and do the final side. The net result would be that you could do all the routing operations with just one jig. Just thinking.

Andy,

Sorry the program won’t let me delete this duplicate. Must have thick fingered something.

Al- these are too easy to cut out with the band saw and finish with the spindle sander to try routing them. Plus I use a lot of wood that is not ‘router friendly’. David- That could work but I wasn’t part of the inventing. I just stole them!
