I bought the 3mm base plates for the Viking Arm tool to allow me to use it on decks & for use in gaps of 5mm or less, which are fairly common. I fitted the 3mm plates, which also have a much smaller footprint, in place of the 6mm plates to the unit I carry with me always. I had a 50kg solid entrance door to fit within days of putting the 3mm feet on. The door opened over a stepped down floor - so the air bags were too small to lift a door that heavy into place. I used the Viking Arm, but found the clamp to be less stable on the ground with the smaller feet, so it wanted to rock back as the door got higher, once it did that the moving plates, having a smaller bearing surface, marked the bottom edge of the door. I ended up using an air bag to keep the door stable on the latch end & the Viking Arm to lift it at the hinge end. I think the 6mm feet would have been better in this setting.
Thanks for the review Craig. Yes I agree the smaller base isn't suitable for heavy doors and the normal 6mm base is always the best option where possible.

Tony is excellent to deal with and sells a great product extremely fast postage as well 👍
Had the opportunity to install the argenta concealed hinge. The jig and templates was perfect for the job super happy every dollar well spent
Great copy ring
I’ve been using the jig now for 2 years
It’s absolute class
People I work for and with are blown away at how quick I can hang doors and install locks!!!
It’s well worth investing the time to understand how it works!!! Tony makes it pretty easy to understand with his videos
His knowledge is dynamite
Good quality cutter. Perfect for deep plunge routing
Great product. As mentioned by Tony it needed slight modification to be used on the Festool OF 1400. This was known when purchased so it wasn’t a surprise. Great to be able to use 16mm and 20mm copy rings on the OF 1400
Exactly as described. Perfect
Great products thanks lock carpentry
Well worth it. No more paint brushes sitting around going dry. Forgot to wash it out after 3 days still wet no issue. Well worth it.
This Jig changes everything. The standout feature is the dust collection and as amazing as that is there is so much more to this Jig.
The setup of it is so easy and has so many built in features. Just push the Jig hard up against the door jam and then use the built in offset on the Jig to get a perfect gap.

A must have if you’re hanging / moving doors around and takes a lot of pressure off my back. A great piece of gear.
