Makes everything so much easier saving me a lot of time.
I’m not a contractor, nor a finish carpenter, but have multiple rentals properties and have installed cabinets and pulls/handles a dozen times. Decided to buy this for my own new home to install 80 handles. Was very impressed with the reviews and initially when the TP135 arrived.However, things went downhill from there.I agree with others that the included drill bit is laughable, and they would be better off just not including it.Ultimately I ruined 2 drawer fronts and 1 cabinet door, which will cost me $300 to replace.On the first drawer, the horizontal slide loosened and got out of alignment. I cranked it down as much as possible (without using vise grips- which would have damaged the soft metal). After tightening the locking screws after each drawer (which shouldn’t be necessary), I wasn’t at all confident in this very expensive tool. It was certainly slowing the process down. Finally I ended up taping the horizontal slides so they wouldn’t move- again…this is a $300 tool.Door 1 was ruined as the vertical clamp loosened- guess I should have figured that so I ended up taping it as well.Drawer 2 was ruined as somehow the metal of tool was scored ( the metal is very soft) and scratched the front of the cabinet.The retaining screw(s) literally would fall out from the minimal vibration of my Ryobi cordless drill.I installed all handles in one day, but will not use this again and prefer to go a much cheaper option that will get better results.
I used this jig to mount 35 pulls ranging from 8 to 24 inches in both horizontal and vertical positions. The jig was easy to use and maintained all settings without flaw. I hope this helps someone else make a decision to purchase this particular product.
First of all Iâ€™m not a super handyman, just wanted to install cabinet door pulls in our kitchen and bathroom cabinets. I have a couple of wide cabinets and after a lot of research I opted to buy this jig since it was the only one long enough for the job. Even though I wasnâ€™t thrilled about the price all the other buyers seemed pleased.When it was time to start to use the jig I went ahead and measured three times to make sure I got the correct measurement and that all cabinets were the same. I configured the jig and I started with a door pull on a wall cabinet (rookie mistake). After drilling the first hole, I noticed that the jig had slipped and it was no longer on the edge of the door panel :(. So I had to reconfigure the jig with the new distance using the first hole as the guide to position my second hole. After that it was very repeatable even though everything was seated a bit lower than desired. Iâ€™m summary, Iâ€™ve only done the cabinet doors (drawers are next) and Iâ€™m pleased with how easy it is. My only suggestion to the company is that for the price they should include a clamp or at least make note of it on the instructions. Iâ€™ll add more information when I do the drawers and use the extension.
Someone was actually thinking of the tradesmen when they designed the this
The best jig I had ever used for cabinet installation work. I try minimizing the fabrication on the job site but it does happen regardless and with this jig it’s made tons quicker. If you decide to buy an expensive jig, make sure to buy the largest kit offered. You are spending the money as it is, a little bit more – and you got a very well crafted toolkit. Takes a little getting used to if you had never used a kit that you had to set up but honestly, it’s not rocket science. Anything you use in the shop needs to be set up. Try working with a Leigh Jig to make dovetails – you know what I mean.Instructions were included with pictures for everything. Easy to follow. Common sense, really. The case is sturdy plastic with little wasted space. The jigs are aluminum with inserts for the drill bits that can be replaced if worn out it seems. A drill bit with a depth bushing is included so all you need is a drill/hammer drill and a tape measure with a pencil to install handles/shelves.Would buy again if ever needed. Good tools cost money and this is what made in USA means.
Product is excellent and scales are accurate. A very high quality product. Would buy again!
I am a Handyman by trade.
Don’t like the price.
Do love the tool and how fast you can set it up and start shooting holes.
No clamps, no guessing.
Very easy to switch from left to right doors.
Solidly built and light.
With the kit, you can also do holes for the pin to hold shelves in a cabinet.
A very serious tool. Glad I bought it.
Works great, has a leaning curve. Easy to use but tape the middle hole. May take some time before it’s faster then the way you do it now but great on big jobs.
I own a Kitchen & Bath Showroom, we average 1 kitchen & 1 bath ever week. This tool is by far the best Jig we have ever used. Have more than a dozen other jigs collecting dust now. So if you are looking for a jig don’t look any further, yes this jig is a little more expensive, It is the BEST. By the way, Value Tools, USA provided the most amazing customer service.
This jig take all the tedious work out of installing cabinet hardware. Just a little measuring and setting and you are ready to go weather installing one, twenty or a hundred. I have several type jigs but this tops them all.
This works well in most cases and does significantly speed up the process of putting on a lot of knobs and pulls. I found that there were certain width drawers that the extension piece could not be used because the drawer was too big for no extension but too small for the extension piece to work. The main reason for 3 stars is I feel that for a tool this expensive it should include a case. It came in a cardboard box which I thought was insulting after paying this much for a tool.
I had about 30 handles to install on my new kitchen & pantry cabinets. Ten were 7 inches on cabinet doors (all the same) and the rest were 13 inch pull handles on 30 and 36 inch drawers. The lower drawer faces are inset about 3/8 in from the frames (Shaker style) so that made 4 variations of drawer set-ups.
I’m not an installer, just doing my own install in my own house. If I goof up a door or drawer front it would take a month to get a replacement and the cost would be most of what this tool cost.
The tool worked better than I expected. I read the reviews so, I made sure the thumb screws were very snug and checked them frequently while using it. What would have taken me all day ended up taking about 70 minutes start to finish. Everything turned out perfect.
This thing is built like a surgical instrument. It does exactly what the manufacturer says it will. Personally I consider the price to be a bargain.
It’s well made and fine jig. Thanks it’s a good addition to my tool kit
Labor is not cheap in the big city, this tool will pay for itself after a couple of jobs. Then it will make me money for the next 20 years. Best product on the market!
Tool worked great! completed cabinet pull installation quickly and cleanly. A few minutes to measure twice for setup and then get to work. Tool is easy to set up and use. Don’t recommend the FestTool drill that Amazon recommends. The drill that came with set works fine, but the FestTool drill bit broke after a few holes. Think it was an issue with the bit, but drilling into white oak & hard maple does take a toll. Recommend having a spare regardless. Once you get started its simple to keep going, but having a sharp drill bit makes the work easier and safer.
I have used and made my own templates that I use a punch tool on. As hard as I try the left is off from the right just a hair. Most customers notice a hair. This jig is identical left and right and you drill instead of punch marking. Really saves time and have great results. When I do pulls I found I should cover center hole with tape as I accidentally drilled wrong hole. The only thing, once you put on extension bars you can’t use the stops.
Best hardware install tool we have ever used in 10 years doing remodels.
So first I purchased this type of set by the cheaper made in China version; but after several months had to try this one; completely worth every penny; cuts my work time tremendously. The quality, sturdiness is great. Amazing product.
I like this tool, or jig, and use it now constantly. But I do wish it could do a few things at this time it cannot. But the accuracy is spot on, and the ease of use is good. I end up setting the stop collar on the 5mm drill bit when drilling holes for door handles or pulls. I finish off that hole with a tapered bit, as not to blow out the back side of what I am drilling. Take a moment more, but if you drill with the 5 mm and then go back and punch out the holes with the tapered bit, its quick enough.
I am a professional cabinet installer. This jig is the best I’ve ever seen. Highly recommend it.
i was looking for a good handle drill jig espacily one that have the option for wider handles, the True Position Tool came up after a quick search on the net, it looked to me very easy to use and well built. so i checked the reviews and they were very good so i decided to order it .since i got it i used it on 4 kitchen projects i had (i am a custom cabinet maker ) ,i must say that it works superb , fast adjustment of different handle sizes ,accurate measurements and makes the process itself much faster .highly recommended for professional users .the only complain I have about the product is the cardboard case -I think its not durable enough for a trade person .
Best system we have tried and used in ten years of installing cabinets. Pays itself back with one kitchen. Guide is great keeping the drill bit perfectly square and adjustment is easy.
This thing is amazing. If you need to drill more than a few doors then it is worth every penny. I bought it only for one project, my kitchen, knowing that my precision drilling is a little lacking. Drilling into your cabinets incorrectly can cause serious cosmetic problems as well, so I figured it was relatively cheap insurance. I drilled every single hole perfectly, about 100. I was even going to sell it on ebay when I was done but no way, I’ll have this forever.
I bought the original jig over 25 years ago , it’s still as accurate as the day I bought it . Adding this version expands my abilities. It was packed well and each part was everything I expected. Even the drill bit & stop collar were high quality ! If you do professional cabinet work this jig is worth every $ . Think about how expensive a mistake can be . My original jig paid for itself on one big job. Clients that choose expensive hardware expect perfect installation. This jig delivers.
I am a finish carpenter, have been doing carpentry work for over twenty years and this is a tool I should have invested in years ago. By far the best cabinet door jig I’ve used to date. Was easy to set up, kept my drill bit straight and prevent flair out on back side of hole when using drill bit stop. I was able to cut my handle installation in half. Well built tool and durable, seems like it will last for years. My only gripe about this tool is the carrying case, it’s card board would love for it to be some material more durable. I’m figuring if I keep by itself away from the other tools it will be fine. Thanks for a great tool Made in America.
Love this jig! My husband installed all our new cabinet hardware in no time at all with this tool. It works great for super long pulls and is extremely accurate. It’s a little pricey but would cost more to have hardware installed professionally. A great tool for the do-it-yourselfer.
I am a kitchen & bath remodeler and have been installing cabinetry for approx. 20 years now. I have been using a jig made by EZ Jig for all those years, which works very well for a lot less money. The problem is that it does not do handles that are wider than about 6′, and there is no quick adjustment. This is where this jig shines.
Most of my jobs involve installing knobs or handles which are 6′ or less. But because of a current job which required installing a variety of very long handles, I finally decided to pay the price for this jig. It worked VERY well and I am glad I bought it.
Easy to adjust with no tools
Over-priced in my opinion. I certainly do not mind paying higher prices for higher quality, and this is higher quality, but not THAT high. I was once a machinist and I can appreciate the quality of the machining on the parts for this jig, but I think it’s over-priced. Having said this, it will pay for itself in my line of work.Cheap cardboard case. At this price, one would expect it to come in a decent molded case of some sort. Every other tool at this price does. I suppose if one is careful enough, the cardboard case will suffice. Time will tell.
It has save me a lot of time and effort,
great tool. HUGE time saver
I had the smaller jig before this (TP-1934), but ran into a couple of jobs that needed 480MM handles. I could have bought the extension bars separate but I like having one of these in the shop and one in the field, so I bought this from Richelieu. The newer handles I’ve been seeing more of have VERY small profiles on the sides, so you have to be dead-on. There isn’t the wobble room for straightening out the hole, so I have found this jig to be the perfect fix. I’ve used it a few time for line boring but mostly longer handles. If you haven’t used one of these tools before, stop thinking about it and buy it! You will thank me later 🙂 This tool paid for itself on it’s 2nd job. I dont own many tools that I can say that about!
This item saved me hundreds because I was able to install my own cabinet hardware. Very easy to use.Note to the designer, it would be great if you modify the extensions so that the adjustable guides would fit them. Having a fixed whole length is not ideal at all.
