A simple Jig-It precisely dimensioned to rout the ''mouse hole'' into the top rail of your hand-made shutters. The mouse hole is a small open-ended mortise that the shutter control arm swings into when the louvers are closed. Simple to use with a standard 1-3/8'' template guide, just clamp and rout. The sturdy transparent jig makes it easy to line up with your pencil marks.
The Mouse Hole Jit-It routs a pocket either 3/8'' W or 5/8'' W; the required dimension is provided with the Shutter Design Wizard Custom Shutter Plans on Rockler.com.
Designed to be used with a 3/8'' or 5/8'' straight bit, depending on the desired mouse hole size, and a 5/8'' template guide (30933).
The 3/8'' mouse hole is for the 1-1/4'' louvered movable shutters and the 5/8'' mouse hole is for the 2-1/2'' and 3-1/2'' movable shutters.
Be sure to rout the mouse hole before assembling your shutters. This way, your shutter rails will never be too short for the Jig-It.
