Michael, that was funny.  The video that's in this thread has wording or sub-titles if you want to call it that.  The wording pops up occasionally through the video, but we English as a first, second and third language people need it translated.

Thanks.

I probably dont hang as many doors as you guys do. The last door I hung in a excisting frame I used the TS 55 w guide rail. I set the door on its side on 2 MFT3's.  It put a awesome clean bevel on the door, and then I set up the door on edge and routed the hinges.

Hey its all personal preferance, but it what works for me.

We have no mountains, so we don't yodel. You need to get yourself some lederhosen and visit Austria for that.

Here you go:

Fitting a door is an accurate job that takes a lot of time, effort and skill. The FrameFitter makes fitting a door an easy job and doors can be made to size quickly, accurately and without heavy lifting. Door frames are never entirely square, straight or uniform. To fit a door correctly you need to saw and plane every single door to size. With traditional tools this can take a tradesman an average of 45 minutes. The door has to be lifted up til 4 times and placed in the frame to measure what you have to cut off. All this lifting and the risk of cuting off too much makes fitting a door not one of the more populair jobs of the average carpenter. 

With The FrameFitter this is history!

The patented system has a frame with extending arms through which the size of the door frame can be measured. Once measured The FrameFitter is placed on top of the door and is cut to size along the guiderail. And in less than 15 minutes! Fast, safe and easy.

The FrameFitter offers comfort, speed and security for each contractor and carpenter who regularly has to fit doors. The FrameFitter was judged by contractors and carpenters as very good in a large field test.

I didn't see  anything about pricing on that site though.

Ken Nagrod:
Thanks, Alex.  The yodeling reference was not meant to be associated with the Netherlands.  I was just curious if JMB had that in his repetoire as well.  He seems to be quite the well-rounded chap, especially his circus skills.
