"Bought this and made my first two joints in laminate worktop without incident. The jig is fairly limited in it's uses, it only has two bolt hole slots and is only really designed for worktop of 600mm or 616mm so you'll not be able to join breakfast bar or similar using it, although that's all plainly clear from the description. If you're planning on fitting lots of kitchens then you'll want something a bit more capable, if you're trying to save the cost of paying someone to fit your worktops then this could be just the thing. The instructions aren't idiot proof, but then it's designed to be used by people intelligent enough to safely wield power tools! Read them through a few times and keep referring back to them as you work and it's all pretty clear. If you take your time and work carefully following general good practice you'll make joints that line up perfectly."
"Excellent Quality - Take care to follow the instructions - you my need to have the jig and/or worktop wrong side up dependant on the joint you are making (left/right, male/female). It can be used on smaller worktops if you use your head and manage without some of the pegs and clamp it tight to the worktop. I succesfully cut a joint between 340mm and 220mm bathroom worktops using it. As my old dad would say "Measure twice and cut once"!"
"This product works fine. In the initial set of instructions there was a misleading image showing a peg in the wrong place but i queried this with screwfix and they had already arranged to send me a new set of instructions. Great Budget Jig which cuts very well."
"As the price of forming the joints has risen considerably over the years, I decided to try it myself. I felt confident, (cocky), that I could do it first time! NOT... The jig is good but I advise that you use an perminant marker to indicate the peg positions for the joints and that you do two trial joints including the bolt joints, as I managed to cut one joint at an angle and offset the bolt joints so that they did not align!"
"I bought this knowing that a jig makes even a tricky job easy, and I have to say that I'm very happy with the outcome, especially as it was the first time that I'd used a 'proper' router and the first time I'd joined a kitchen worktop.
I said that I would recommend it... HOWEVER... that's mainly because it was so much cheaper than the alternative and I did get decent joins out of it...
It's not hard to see how it could be improved though - the two pegs that you have to use to line up the jig on the worktop are so close that you have to spend quite a while taking great care to get it just right, and then check that it's not moved before you start up your router... Also, the holes that you need to use to cut each side of the join are not marked on the jig (only on the instruction sheet) so to start with there's a lot of going back and forth to make sure that you've got it correct."
