good price if you need one, I paid a lot more for mine
#2
okay if you are doing your own kitchen cos this is less than hiring one, plus you will still get something if you resell it.....
#3
Always wanted to have a go with one of these but as they are normally £80+ then i haven't had the chance. Time to play me thinks.

Edit : read some reviews, think I'll pass
Edit2 : Arr sod it, still want to play.

Yes I ordered one too, got some odd bits of worktop to practice on as well ;-)

Great price Mike - did my first "jig-fitted" worktop last year. You need a powerful router at least 1500watt with half inch fitting and also check you have enough plunge depth. If you have a large square its worth double checking the alignment of the pins before clamping in the final position.....

These are seriously crap, the decent ones are sooo much dearer for a reason.

hows it crap..... its only a template for the routers bush guide to follow . the actual material it is made of is probably inferior but i bet i can cut a seamless joint using this as good as an expensive one . a bad worker always blames his tools !
[mod]#10
A pro wouldnt buy this one as he uses his lots and I bet the guide bush will wear the guide after less passes than a £100 bit of kit but for joe average doing 2 or 3 cuts its prob going to be fine.

reading the reviews looks like there are issues with their accuracy

Looks good if you are doing a mitred joint do the mitre first then when correct cut the top to length. That way if you mess it up you just cut bit off, do it again to get right. Done a few in my time.
#13
I will have one, could door with a hinge jig......

You can get worktops professionally cut to size off-site now. Saves messing about with mitred joints...:thumbsup:


Very handy if your wall are 100% square, which 99% are not, the worktop should be scribed to the wall to ensure even overhang.

These jigs are fine until they get a nick out of them, then your joint will not be so clever.

i havnt read the reviews but i would guess these inaccuracies are down to user error/inexperience . if you havnt used one before they can look a bit confusing as theres so many holes for the dowel stops for the male and female joints ,along with holes for all the different worktop depths the jig caters for.

You measure at the widest point and trim at the back if necessary. Tiles are 1cm thick and hide any irregularities. It's the mitred joint cutting that is crucial for a good finish. Use Colorfill joint sealant in a matching colour to your worktop (1 x 25g tube per 60cm joint). :thumbsup:


All depends on how bad your walls are, the pro would always scribe and do the joint on site every time.

Tats the rapid time is money method, lots dont bother to put polyurathane varnish on joints either as it takes time, just horse it full of silicone, just as good job done.

Personally I like work to be carried out to a high standard and when it comes to laminate worktop, I'd advise taking all precautions to avoid any risk of blown ends/joints.

I just ruined my £130 one the other day because I wasn't pay heed to what I was doing. A router blade rotating at 22,000 rev a min will make short work of a costly jig than a cheap jig. You have got to remember that is what they are and if you treat them with respect a cheap one will work perfectly. To be quite honest they are over priced in the first place.

You can scribe the back of a worktop too much as you will reduce the size of the overhang at the front and if you keep on cutting the back before long you will see the top of your doors. the Joiner/carpenter will adjust the scribed joint using the jig to accomadate the walls. The silicone not only acts as a sealant to the joint but also acts as glue. Try seperating the joint if its left to dry overnight.

Lets just say I've seen a mitre with a poor jig, which had a slight nick it in, colorfill was used and it wasn't a pretty site.

It's not about being able to seperate the joint, that wont happen even with no silicone give they are held together by bolts, it's about the penetration of the silicone or colorfill.

That colorfill stuff is not very good at all, there is far better stuff available and again to be used after taken the time to poly varnish first.
