I've been using Lee Valley's magnetic corner chisel to clean up hinge
mortises, but I'm wondering if there is a larger version available -
something with a guide like the LV one, only larger, to handle the
radii left by larger diameter router bits. Anyone know of one?
Use the square chisel from a square chisel mortiser if the slot is big
enough. I think Lee Valley or Nielsen is making them for that purpose
now with a bang surface on top after getting the idea from Darrell

I'd rather not go deep like that. Mortiser chisels have that rounded
edge which is longer at the corners. It allows too much wood to chip
out if the grain is so inclined. BTDT and learned to use a sharper
chisel and a lighter (ShopFox urethane) mallet (Yes, Leon, your spel
chucker missed that one, too) whack for hinge, striker, and door lock
We either make ourselves happy or miserable.
The amount of work is the same.
