I just finished struggling to install a small 17" x 17" door using
no-mortise hinges. I applied the hinges to the door and then came the fun
when I tried to line them up to mark for holes in the frame. I finally had
to have my wife come mark the holes with a punch while I held the door in
place but I'm betting there is a lot better way to do this. Can anyone share
some better methodology with me?
Two side tape on the cabinet portion of the hinge. Position the door
drop it in place. Press to temporarily stick the hinge to the
cabinet. If satisfied, gently open the door, mark for screws.
If your not satisfied pull it off and try again.
That's exactly what I'm going to be doing tonight.

If you are working on a cabinet, set it on a level surface in the shop
(plywood), then shim up to the correct height with scrap 2x4's or
whatever. Open the door (still supported) & mark for screws.
