In this regard, how do you mortise a hinge with a Dremel?
Put one hinge on the spine of the door so that it is in line with the pencil line. Use your utility knife to trace the three-sided outline in the wood. Use the Dremel to fix the housings of the door hinge. Turn on the Dremel and push it down until the bit is fully inserted into the hinge.
Likewise, what tool do you use for door hinges? The basic tool for installing door hinge hardware is the screwdriver. The standard for wood screws is the phillip's head, although the flat head is sometimes called for. You'll definitely want a flat head screwdriver on hand when working with door hinge hardware, even if none of the screws require it.

- Position the chisel on the scored line with the chisel perpendicular to the door or jamb and the bevel side of the chisel facing toward the mortise.
