I posted this topic on another forum, but something tells me I will get a better and quicker response on LJ.
I am new to routers, and have actually purchased a Bosch Colt for a small trim job and just got the Bosch 1617EVS. Had not had time to begin using the 1617 as yet.
I have been asked by a friend to help out with a project where we will be replacing light weight surface mounted bifold door hinges on 1-3/8” thick wood doors with regular door hinges. We have 7 doors that we need to do. So the total number of cuts is something between 14 and 21.
I am thinking I want to use a router to cut the mortises. Which of these two routers would you suggest I use and what accessories (template, jig, bushings) would I need to layout and cut these hinge mortises? Not too excited to spend a lot of money in that this is a one time thing, unless some of the accessories can be used for other things.
Are there any other things I should consider?
