Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased the Ecodrill as my wife wanted to renew the look of our kitchen. In an effort to save money we decided to buy new doors directly from the manufacturer, however before doing do I wanted to make sure I could drill the holes required to re-use the 90 existing Blum hinges with a regular power drill. The Ecodrill made this a piece of cake. While the instructions that come with the Ecodrill are OK, they are not all that necessary as the unit is very intuitive to use. It drills the main 35mm hinge hole and the two adjacent 8mm holes for Blum plastic dowels for the hinge screws or it can drill the main 35mm hole and mark the screw locations if the hinge screws go directly into the door. I highly recommend the Ecodrill for anyone needing to drill accurate and precise holes for Blum or other similar style hinges.
Quality product design; worked just as anticipated. Even with cabinet doors that already have an existing 1-1/4" overlay but with need to relocate the screw holes to accommodate updated hinges, I was able to depress the 1-1/4" drill bit into the existing hole for alignment purposes, then lock the Jig in place with the tightening "wings" and presto! the resulting screw holes were easy and precise. How sweet it is to use the right tool for the job!
This is a wonderful investment if you have many cabinet hinges to install. It is constructed with quality and it is thoughtfully designed to be self contained and simple to use. I used it to replace poor contractor hinges with Blum and this made it easy. Make sure you understand all of your measurements and choices for your particular hinge and set up accordingly. Testing on a piece of scrap is a wise choice to get comfortable with it and truly understand the settings. I used it on multiple types of Blum hinges and it worked perfectly every time.
