the US adaptor plate then one of these http://www.trend-uk.com/en/UK/product/GB_US_160/4/203/guide_bush_usa_16mm_hinge_jig_.html

John.....

Thats how i do it. Well to be honest i normally use my chisels because they are faster fora few doors

Any time i have ever done hinge mortices, it is for no more than a very few.  Usually to hang one or two doors.  I just do it the way i learned many moons ago when i was a teenager.  Marking guage, hammer and chisel.  That is quicker than setting up the router.

When using the router, i find more tendency for erroer than the chisel method.  But, that's me

I use the Trend hinge jig with a OF1400  when I'm hanging a fair few fire doors (usually in schools). In peoples houses when just using 3" butts i just use a hammer and chisel..

I use the long Trend hinge jig if I'm fitting loads of doors or its not many generally just chisel them out.
Sometimes I do a combination and mark out with a knife chisel the top and bottom of the hinge mortise and rout it out freehand.
It all depends on what tools are furthest away or how many doors I have to do.

What I use for the same purpose:

Leigh adaptor: Leigh adaptor at Axminster

Axminster bushing kit (includes 16mm): Axminster Metric bushing kit

Edit: Just saw this is for an antique thread dredged up from the grave, anyhoo my advice stands.

When I was using an OF1000 for this purpose I found that a standard Festool 17mm guide bush used with a 13mm straight cutter worked as well as a 16mm Trend GB and their 12mm cutter. For rounded corner hinges (which are often 10mm radius) I used a 24mm GB with a 20mm diameter cutter
