Best Kitchen cabinet handle drill jig?
« on: May 20, 2017, 09:48 PM »
I have 67 handles to install next week. Many different drawer sizes.   Already delayed getting the entire job done so I would rather not kill a day doing this.  Has anybody used an adjustable jig that works well?  I have used the Rockler one but not to happy with it.

Found the True Position Drill Guide so far. At $185, not cheap but at this point I am not price sensitive.

I installed a fairly large IKEA kitchen and dreaded installing the hardware. Ended up getting the True Precisin jig. Did the entire kitchen in less than 2 hours and every pull was perfect. It's been sitting in the box ever since but I don't regret spending the money for even a second. I can't imagine how long it would have taken or how poorly the job would have come out without it.

I install for a living and I carry 2 handle jigs. If I was only buying one it would be the euro handle jig. It's really expecially for drawers. I also have a richelieu jig that I use for doors it's good but I don't like for drawers. Hope this helps.

I have the Sommerfeld and is at $69.90 on their website.  Had done everything I need it to do and good adjustments for different hardware.  Bill

I've used the Euro Handle jig, pictured in Sparky's post above, for many years and am satisfied with the accuracy and durability of this jig.  I paid about $35.00 for it but that was probably  10 years ago.  It is very simple to set up and virtually foolproof.
