    Hi all,

    I've just seen a locksmith using a mortise jig to fit a lock. it is superb. But it is NOT the trend one.
    It appeared to be called the DBB mortice jig and is designed to be used with a drill. A superb bit of kit that just clamps to the door. A special bit fits into your drill and you set the depth. The unit then slides on two poles up and down the door.

    I know of one company that supplies www.johnrichard.co.uk/Tools/Morticer.htm - 2k
    but they won't deal with me as I'm not a limited company and am not a registered locksmith. Does anybody know of anywhere else I can obtain one or something very similar?
    Currently there is one for sale on ebay , but it is slighlty damaged.

    any help very much appreciated

    No Joy thanks b&s. the nearest one they do has a machine attached to the jig. the one I'm after comes as just a jig and costs about £130. Thanks anyway
