Default hinge slot cutter

I have a plane ready to put all the hinges in. Up till now I have put them in manually, after I have covered the pieces. I would just cut a small rectangular slot the then do the hinge slot.

I have a great planes hinge slot cutter ordered and will be here in a few days. With this new tool should you use it before or after you cover?

Also this plane is being re-built so there have already been CA hinges installed. Will the hinge cutter, being a power tool, cut thru the remnants of the old hinge?
