I need to fit at least 12 doors, 6 of these are fire doors. So I need to cut out for the hinges on all the doors and frame, as well as fit the Intumescent fire strip in 6 door or frames.

So what do I look for in choosing a router? (I am in the UK if it makes any difference)

See also What to look for when picking a router?, however that question is aimed at hobby wood working, rather then DIY.


You will probably need a trim router(it will be easier to handle compared to a full sized one), as well as a hinge mortising jig. That's really all to it
